"These poems are gems: simple, yet very powerful. The animate souls of the desert’s countless creatures and features speak here in sparse, crystalline verse. The poems are evocative of both the land and human relationship. The narrative thread that links them, sometimes whimsical, sometimes humorous provides the personal touch. Few words, short lines, short strokes, yet as packed as can be with all the magic of a deeply felt experience of the natural world. Heidi Elizabeth Blankenship is the Emily Dickinson of the Desert."
