Blue Mountain Lake Poems
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.
