i was drawn to this book, for an unknown reason....i picked it up, and bought it for 50 cents at a thrift shop. i did't read it right away... i saved it....and then the day came, i was real down; i read this book, and realized that it soounded like every single word that had been running through my mind....put together in a beautiful masterpiece, that i couldn't have said better. it helped me get through the day, so i could live another one. i thank james kavanaugh, for writeing this book, and helping me realize there are others like me, out there, in this world with "IBM eyes".

My wayward child at age 13 gave this book to me for a Christmas present. I then knew who he was and is for the first time. As he has matured into adulthood 20 years later, this book is still one of his favorites and mine, too. There are many of us in the world who are too gentle to live among the wolves.

This is a great little book of poetry. I bought it for my nephew's memorial service. He passed away very young and will always be remembered for his sensitivity, the chickens in his backyard, and his music. The poem describing "men too gentle to live among wolves" described him perfectly and I read this to our family. I think everyone was touched by James Kavanaugh's words. This poem is one of my very favorites and the others are good too.

"There are Men Too Gentle to Live Among Wolves"

A wonderful book of poetry written by a man, and directed in many ways to men, reminding us how important it is to "care" in a world that is often indifferent and accepting of the status quo.

I go back and read it from time-to-time, when I sense I'm getting just a little too comfortable with myself.

Many thanks to James Kavanaugh.

The book "There are Men too Gentle to Live Among Wolves" is a fabulous book of poetry. But, the introduction itself tells an even greater story. One of dreamers, searchers, restless people in life describes James Kavanaugh journey in writing about life and times. The introduction and the lead poem, "There are Men Too Gentle to Live Among Wolves" both inspired me to write about Kavanaugh in "Searching" in a companion book, "The Rivers of Time". I loved Kavanaugh's writing, the very depth of his expression about life and feelings; and recommend them all to you.

I first bought this book many years ago as a gift to my father for whom the title seemed a perfect description. Recently, I bought it again for a friend. The author, James Kavanaugh, is a gifted poet as this book demonstrates. I may have to buy another copy just so I can own it. This is not a book you can send to just anyone. The recipient has to be a very special kind of man. The men to whom I gave this book were indeed very special.

I first read James Kavanaugh when I was in high school and had to have his books in my library. I can taste, smell, and feel his writing....it is absolutely grounding in nature and soul...beautiful.

A friend recommended this collection of poetry and I'd never heard of Kavanaugh.

So HAPPY she did. It's wonderful, and though I hadn't read a true poetry book in ages, after reading just a few pages I wondered what took me so long. You will not be disappointed. Not one bit. :-)
