This book makes available a generous array of Chute's] narrative poems, most of them originally published by small presses, sometimes in limited editions. Besides, it collects eight shorter poems from literary magazines. Admirers of Chute's work, whose numbers must surely be growing, will be glad to find so many of his essential poems so conveniently gathered together. X.J.Kennedy Each of Chute's] poems is a search for meaning, that peculiarly human activity we couldn't stop if we tried. It is the concern of the poet and of his characters. ---Pamela Alexander, author of "Navigable Waters" His images are as sharp as crusted snow, and the winter lands he shows us is obviously a land which he knows and has walked himself, a land as real as the sound of feet breaking through the snow crust, as real and as lasting as Abenaki Dreams. ---Joseph Bruchac.
