"[John] Daniel . . . has done a terrific job of gathering these poems. Deborah Randolph Wildman's visually tasty cover art and woodcut illustrations help set the tone for the collection—a wilderness sampler that goes down smoothly."
Poetry has a distinct and indispensable role to play in our evolving relationship with the natural world that we are at the same time part of and estranged from. Along with a scientific understanding of nature, we need just as crucially—more crucially, perhaps—a revived imaginal awareness, a knowledge based in heart and bodily systems. The diverse poems in this collection, most of them first published in Wilderness magazine, offer visions of the wildness within and around us all the time, even in the places we have altered most.
This exquisite collection contains illustrations by Deborah Randolph Wildman, adding spirit and charm to make Wild Song a lovely gift for spring and for every season.
