Poetry. Andrew Schelling's high county notebook is a contemplative fusing of nature journal and psychotropic poetry. Full of what the author calls "dream world distortions," this collection has "the detail and monumentality of bonsai trees and the sheer sweep of Shelly's Mont Blanc"—Michael McClure.
