About the Author
Maureen Eppstein is a New Zealander now living in Mendocino, California, where she helps run the Mendocino Coast Writers Conference. Widely published, her poems have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, have received awards in many competitions, have been included in a textbook on computer graphics, and have been used in a university-level geology course.
With a naturalist's eye for the precise and sensuous image and a writer's care for the precise and sensuous word, Maureen Eppstein plants our human griefs into this book, roots them, and invites them to quicken into new life.
-- Jane Hirshfield, author of "Nine Gates"
