"Louise McKinney’s generous poems are all the more interesting for being grounded in a variety of distant places. Yet their distant landscapes are finally within, spirit being awakened again and again by the poet’s words. These poems offer rare gifts of new language and expansive humanity." – Lawrence Hetrick, Derelict Tributaries
