In Nature of Things, Mary Pneuman brings together selected poems that reflect on life in the Pacific Northwest, the Illinois prairie, and some of the more distant parts of the world. With wonder and warmth, she explores the natural world and the poignant and often paradoxical relationships of the inhabitants of our Earthly home. In her first published collection, the author draws on childhood memories of the fields and forests of the family farm, observations of the flora and fauna of the northwest, and speculation about what lies ahead in the world beyond.

Mary’s affinity for the natural world is central to her need to express herself and provides the subject matter of much of her writing. After 30 years as an English teacher, school counselor and school psychologist, Mary rediscovered the love of words she believes she inherited from her father. When not writing, she spends her time with her family, vegetable garden, travel, and singing in a community chorale. Nature of Things is her first published book. “Poetry is my way of leaving a place mark on the map of my personal experience,” she says.
