In five distinct sections, he evokes the delights and pains of growing up- celebrates the power of nature- examines the conflicts and challenges of a society unwilling to embrace its diversity- plumbs the concept of change- and uncovers the magic of myths, mysteries, and love. The Horn Book Magazine called James Berrys previous poetry collection, When I Dance, a kind of epiphany. Here, again, this remarkable poet has created a work that will astonish readers with its beauty, its lyricism, and its clarity.
