Poetry. "Harry Northup's new series of poetic meditations is cast in an incantatory mold. The voice of a human coyote railing against the wondrous savage world it inhabits, in order to embrace it before final extinction. This world, although eponymous to Northup's own West, reaches beyond its confines, as if to rescue it from dissolution. My words can only suggest the daring enormity of his vision. It will confound and enthrall the reader. I am filled with a lingering awe at his accomplishment"--Frank Corsaro.
