Synopsis
In sound and in substance the thirty-eight poems in this collection are truly in the American grain - specific to the high valleys, the wind battered prairies and peaks of the Mountain States. "Where I live," Galvin writes, "distance is the primal fact." Yet these poems are close ups, portraits in depth of the men and women in the small towns, on the scattered farms and ranches, whose lives, speech, deaths have been forged by the harsh beauty of the country they pit themselves against. "There is no philosophy of death where I live/Only philosophies of suffering." In the service of these people and these places Galvin brings an impeccable ear, superior craft, and the unsentimental tenderness of the authentic poet.
