"WIND FARM swirls with urgency, the poet dazzling us in prose that moves swiftly across time and place, a story that will not let the reader go quietly, peacefully, as the wind farmer meditates on a host of transgressions and graces, looking back across the miles to the west at the towering turbines that now inhabit the farm of his youth."—Todd Davis
