I was particularly struck by the use of poetry in supporting the literature. When you wish to imagine the "quiet voice of a plainsman" the poem "That Trick of Silence" fills the senses with the land and nature's workings.
The Native American references are informative and vivid. The poem, "I Speak to the Thunder" took my breath away -- whether Cheyenne or Algonquin language - it speaks to the heart.
This is a book that would make a wonderful gift to anyone who admires good writing and the beauty of good writing.
