In his third collection of poetry, Thomas Mitchell celebrates life more powerfully and more enthusiastically than ever before, reaffirming our connectedness with one another and with the natural world. His work is marked with a strident maturity; his control of language is remarkably precise yet always filled with humanity. American poet Joseph Millar describes Mitchell's poems as "fully alive to the moment, yet haunted throughout by a dim nostalgia," stating, "I most admire their clear language and close attention, in the tradition of Jim Harrison and Wendell Berry."
