Dream of the Southwest

Follow the poet into landscapes of the heart, red and rich with the mysteries of high-desert beauty: “...cliff and canyon, raven, river, quail and coyote, savannah grass and deer....” In this collection of poems, Karen Austen captures the color and the power of the American Southwest, then takes the reader coastward into California, up through Washington state, and finally into islands off the west coast of Canada. She renders the sights, scents and sounds of seasons in their ever-unfolding panorama of change—the flora and fauna that surround her—all with an inspirational and loving eye.... These poems are pictorial, sonorous, sensuous, sometimes humorful or even magical, and crafted carefully—yet with an immediacy of delight and devotion that moves us to reflect deeply on the magnitude of our earth’s enduring power and beauty.
