Format: Paperback
Laurie Wagner Buyer shakes me. She rattles me. She is a voice true, kind, sparkling, fresh and honest. Her best poems are so stark and scintillating they stand in your way like giant diamonds, demanding you either climb them or yield.

By E. B. on February 25, 2009
Format: Paperback
In this slim book of poetry, Laurie Wagner Buyers captures both the beauty and the harsh reality of life lived on the ranches and farms of the American West. In To Kill a Cat, you feel the love in this hard man who shoots the cat--one shot--and buries it for her. In The Taste of Honey, she imagines the longed for spring. In the Shadow of Black Mountain, one glimpses the beauty of character in the long-time ranch woman being laid to rest.
Eunice Boeve, author of Ride a Shadowed Trail
