Rootabaga Stories (1922) is a children's book of interrelated short stories by Carl Sandburg. The whimsical, sometimes melancholy stories, which often use nonsense language, were originally created... More > for his own daughters. Sandburg had three daughters, Margaret, Janet and Helga, whom he nicknamed "Spink", "Skabootch" and "Swipes" -those nicknames occur in some of his Rootabaga stories. The "Rootabaga" stories were born of Sandburg's desire for "American fairy tales" to match American childhood. He felt that the European stories involving royalty and knights were inappropriate, and so set his stories in a fictionalized American Midwest called "the Rootabaga country" filled with farms, trains, and corn fairies.

The bulk of these poems were written by Densmore between the years 1998 and 2003. Similar in scope to the poems of Carl Sandburg and Robert Frost with the imagistic power of Wallace Stevens, his... More > poetry comes from a quiet and thoughtful observation of life, nature, and the people who inhabit both. The poems throughout are gentle and warm but never without purpose and drive. In their unfolding is revealed a comforting philosophy of time, memory, and the events of which both are composed. In an early review of the original print run Tom Slayton -- then editor of Vermont Life Magazine -- said "...
