Product description

Review

"If we hope to proceed into the future as a civilized country, we are going to need the work and the example of young people such as Mr. Pruiksma."

Wendell Berry, from a letter recommending the author

"Pruiksma's mysterious magic is all here. But he also shares some hallucinatory insights, those that you can only get when you are a child and you wonder. When tiny observations embrace the whole world. Even a dark world."

Gustavo Esteva, author of Grassroots Postmodernism: Remaking the Soil of Cultures

"Pruiksma is a fine poet, a gifted and dedicated translator, and a devoted scholar."

Sam Hamill, author of Habitation: Collected Poems
