Award-winning poet and playwright Barbara Nickel returns to her Prairie roots in a beautiful collection of seasonal poems that chart, with a birdâ€™s-eye view of the western landscape, natureâ€™s glorious playground. Nickelâ€™s experimental verses are perfectly complimented by Kathy Thiessenâ€™s black-and-white etchings, making this ideal for any young Canadian â€“ Prairie-dweller, would-be poet, or otherwise.
