Poetry of the Blue Bills Reservation
(Edwin Mellen Press 2003)
Read praise for this book:
HOUSICWHISSICK BLUE “… addresses the great sweep of history and prehistory contained in a few thousands acres of preserved land near her home…to its geologic origins, to its earliest settlers who crossed the northern land-mass from Siberia, to their descendents the Massachuset, and to later settlers from Europe. Her companion essay provides a wealth of detail and makes it clear that the poetry is grounded in the bedrock of fact… Housicwhissick Blue is filled with the sort of luck that has little to do with happenstance and everything to do with the poet’s alert imagination and ability to engage her readers.” —Pamela Alexander, author of A COMMONWEALTH OF WINGS and SLOW FIRE
