Savoring the Elements: Poetry and Prose from the Natural World
edited by Walt McLaughlin
Wood Thrush Books, 2022
138 pages, paperback
The new poetry and prose of Stuart Bartow, Howard Nelson, Freya Manfred, and many other past contributors to WTB anthologies brought together with nature writing by a few newcomers. Excerpts from Scott King’s Following the Earth Around: Journal of a Naturalist’s Year are also presented here, along with selections from recent WTB publications by Walt Franklin, Helen Ruggieri and Walt McLaughlin. This anthology, like those in the past, focuses upon each writer’s engagement with the natural world and their eloquent response to it.
