Author: Michael Finch

Publisher: WestBow Press

Date: July 27, 2015

Format: Paperback

Length: 54 pages

OVERVIEW

For many of us, a long drive through the American heartland whispers “home.” From the spring rain falling over the Kentucky bluegrass to the snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains, we are chased by echoes of beauty and dreams of a simpler time. In this book, Finch aims to capture that wonder through his poetry on subjects ranging from nature and home to history and love.

These 34 poems are divided into four sections, each focusing on a different subject: Middle America; The Martyrs; Loves, New and Lost; and America. Sweeping imagery and precise word choice envelop the reader in the sights, smells, and feeling of each location and era.
