Savoring Alaskan landscapes by way of birch trees has become Kes Woodward’s trademark. This collection brings together thirty years of his birch portraits and forest close-ups. Over the same thirty years, poet Peggy Shumaker has traveled inner landscapes via images drawn from two deserts—the Sonoran and the subarctic. Her poems embody the harsh beauty of heat and cold, the force of true extremes. Wounded trees, marked paths, slashes of color. Bursts of passion, licks of flame. The sensual spirits of two imaginations at work fuel this volume.
