Poetry. Environmental Studies. Pamela Hughes' MEADOWLAND TAKE MY HAND is both an elegy for the continued loss of the land and an exploration of the toxic and playful. Along the track of this eco-adventure, from mountainous landfills and industrial wastelands to the low key beauty of mudflats, the swaying green give of the wetlands along a backdrop of Manhattan's fixed silver horizon, readers will discover the "order of the odor" and "the dank inside of adventure." Narrative and lyric poetry mark the way through the Meadowlands, where loss and hope abide.
