Product description

Review

Gerry's gift of poetic language conveys the spirit, beauty and harshness of life in Wyoming, as well as the depth of his love for family and friends with vivid imagery. The truth of his poems about relationships will resonate with the soul, and his insight into nature's wildlife will touch the heart. -- Gene Gagliano, Wyoming Poet Laureate

Gerry Spence speaks clear as the bluest sky in A Small Pile Feathers. Here is a legendary American voice "crying in the lost far gone" yet tempered with an immersion in the natural world, a love for family and a consummate identification with his home, Wyoming. One would anticipate the fierce timbre of a frontier lawyer, however, nearing the end of this record of Western seasons, this yearning: "If our wretched world could grasp the grace of peace," there is a sweet humility that is more convincing than persuasion. Spence is not sparing of those who would waste the world and yet more profound is his argument to "sing out of a heart worn smooth" and "at last, in peace, to face the boundaries of life." -- James Scott Smith, author of Water, Rocks and Trees
