A collection of poems from F.A. Loomis about the tensions between urban and rural life and the beauty that connects them. Integrating both worlds can be challenging, but for those who are able these images and ironies will speak with familiarity. The unusual diversity of the poems is the result of many years of work and travel back and forth from the mountains of central Idaho—where the author grew up—and Boston; New Haven; New York; Washington, D.C.; San Francisco; Los Angeles; Albuquerque; and Seattle.
Some of the author's other works include Frankie Ravan, Gold Fork Dreams, Salmon River Lookout, As Long As Life, Blue Duwamish, 60 Minute Stories, The Adventures of Beanie and Larry, and Ladies with Sisu.

The ghost of Walt Whitman is standing in the room as you read these poems tying rural to urban life. Get off a plane in Queens and be back in Montana or Idaho fishing in the evening. Connections in these images bring city and country dwellers together in a genuine way.
