Read full description of the books:
This anthology includes poems from 55 poets who share an abiding concern for the beauty and fragility of our earth. From every part of the country come words in praise of nature, isights reflecting the ancient truth. To survive, the human race must stay attuned to the rhythms of the natural world. Here are poems about herons and the Haida, pinewoods and a mountain lake, acid rain and the MX missile.
These poems first appeared in The Amicus Journal, a publication of the Natural Resources Defense Council. The collection, selected by the journal's founding editor, Peter Borrelli, and its poetry editor, Brian Swann, includes the work of some of the nation's most distinguished poets, including Wendell Berry, John Haines, David Ignatow, Denise Levertov, Mary Qliver, W.S. Merwin, and Gary Snyder.
The design and illustrations are by Andrea Hendrick, noted California painter, printmaker and winner of the Benjamin Franklin Award for the book Northwest Passages, from the pen of John Muir.
Poetry from The Amicus Journal is dedicated to the people and environment of Alaska's Prince Wiliam Sound, NRDC's proceeds from the sale of the book will be earmarked for its litigation against Exxon in the matter of Exxon Valdez.
