About the Author
"Wolf Tree is magic; not in the manner of the wide-eyed crystal-kisser, but vibrant and gritty, fecund and restrained, and layered with a forest floor of metaphor and experience revealed from a life lived engulfed in it. She reminds us we humans are noisy animals but then, time and again, reveals the truths we may discover if we approach the world, like so many of our relatives do, in silence. This is a holy book."
--Chris LaTray, award-winning author of One-Sentence Journal
"Wow. That is the word I spoke aloud over and over while reading Wolf Tree. Durham's new book is nine kinds of beautiful. Fearless, authentic, raw, glistening, intense, wondering, wandering, untethered, highly original. Wolf Tree is nothing short of stunning."
--Lyanda Lynn Haupt, author of Rooted: Life at the Crossroads of Science, Nature, and Spirit
"Wolf Tree is a richly textured mosaic...Through a striking, openly vulnerable, and deeply personal examination of many kinds of relationships runs a tension between solitude and community. As she travels between the unpredictable, often fraught company of other people and the balm of wilderness, Durham wonders, Where, and how, might I belong? In these pages, we are able to live those questions and their accompanying aches and pleasures. Like the sea glass Durham ponders, this book is a true gift."
--Derek Sheffield, Poetry Editor of Terrain.org and author of Not for Luck
