Bachman's fourth book of poems, illustrated by the fine watercolors of Ann C. Colley, is a labor of love for the Adirondacks, where he and his wife canoe, hike, climb, enjoy fellowship with friends, and soak up the beauty. In this book Bachman animates nature in his most effective way yet. Loons soar, dive, yodel, wail; trees become living, animate presences--sometimes beautiful, sometimes monster-like and threatening; mountain trails and summits become arenas where beauty and awe tear at the eye and emotions: all part of the eons-old cycle of life.

Charles Bachman's love of the Adirondacks, his 20-year teaching of Native American Literature, his keen sense of the beautiful and bizarre, and fine ear for rhythms of the language, are evident in this fourth book of poems.
