Reviews

"There is such a force displayed in the poems in The Trailhead, one that writes on sexuality and power, meditating on larger concerns around ethics, from stories of spinsters, conversion, religion, righteous action, desire, wilderness and poetry. Webster's poems flood their narratives with discomfort, and an unease that can't be turned away from, taking stock of the climate and providing insight into the unexamined."--Rob McLennan, Rob McLennan's Blog

"With impeccable grace and verve, Webster doubles down on a discomfiting stereotype, claiming it powerfully as a point of view. The book opens its concerns about sexuality and power into ecopoetic and larger ethical meditations."--Cathy Wagner, author of Nervous Device
