Recommended Reading

I was fortunate to recieve a copy of Crow Call by the fine working class poet, Michael Henson. This is a great collection of work -- not a weak poem in it. This collection is "both a memorial and a call to awareness, these poems were written in response to the death of a friend. Buddy Gray, a grassroots activist and co-founder of the National Coalition for the Homeless. . ."

These poems speak of the fragility of life and of it's many layers. They invoke nature and speak the connections of past and present with an eye to the future. These poems are deeply emotional and rooted in the cold earth of Cincinnati where the bones of nameless workers tremble under the feet of their angry and desperate descendants across our land where the homeless and near homeless shiver against the wind.
At only $12.95 to West End Press this is a bargain that will enrich and inspire and motivate the reader. It gets our highest recommendation.
