Review of 'Chinook and Chanterelle' on 'LibraryThing'

4 stars

A lovely collection of reflective, observational poetry. The poet is also a professional naturalist and it shows: about half of the poems are celebrations of the natural world in Cascadia; often of very small elements of it. The others are more interpersonal, with a few particularly heartfelt poems about loss: bereavement, aging, and the loss of folkways.
