These poems of struggle, survival, and hard-earned love are as stark and solid as a rocky Ozark hillside. An impressive rendering of a unique place and the people who inhabit it, told in a language that is as fresh and inviting as a mountain stream.
—Robert Hamblin, Author of Dogwood Winter and Other Seasons
Winner of the Missouri Author Award for Fiction.
A new voice from the Ozarks, C.D. Albin crafts a reverent, clear-eyed but heartfelt look at his people, the love, the violence, the myriad forces at work in lives that push the hidden up through the ground, to be seen and reckoned with in surprising ways.
—Daniel Woodrell, author of Winter’s Bone
