Vivid and powerfully descriptive, this collection of poems demonstrates a trained naturalist's eye, painting a sensuous and idiosyncratic portrait of the author's rugged maritime landscape. Simultaneously staking out an emotional territory, this engrossing examination is layered with hard-edged textures and fiercely felt cadences. Combining selections from the author's previous compendiums with new verse, this poetic exploration presents a unique blend of scientific detachment and empathetic range.
