Written in the shadow of the Ford Empire, this poetry collection touches on everything that tangled history connotes: labor battles, cars, ecological peril and the triumph of the human spirit.
In this widely-published collection of poems, Cal Freeman uses the lyric to annotate his world with an eye toward preserving the natural treasures of The Great Lakes Basin. With a foreword by Peter Kline.
