From the vast expanse of the boreal forest, Vivian Demuth shows both an exquisite eye for detail and a profound concern for the larger environmental picture. Her lively poems show that, to an engaged observer with an accomplished literary imagination, the mountain forest is a complex, animated bio-community resonating with beauty and sentient beings, large, small, and mysterious. Mixing elements of realism and magical realism, humour and protest, and traditional and experimental forms, this volume offers a unique contribution to Canadian eco-poetry.

Vivian Demuth is the author of a novel, Eyes of the Forest (Smoky Peace Press, 2007), and a poetry chapbook, Breathing Nose Mountain (Long Shot, 2004). Her work has appeared in journals and anthologies in Canada, Europe, Mexico, and the United States. She has worked as a park ranger and park warden, an outdoor educator, and as a fire lookout in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, where she hosts an annual Poetry on the Peaks event.

"An intelligent inspired feminist and highly cogent poetics, coming from one who has truly lived ’outside’" – Anne Waldman
