The power of Susan Maeder's book lies not onlyin its lyric beauty, but in an unfolding, urgent journey of the spirit. These poems offer consolation through physical communion, and go on to define redemption through a return to a deeper connection with nature.
This book offers a rare and courageous view for the new millennium. Maeder insists on a recognition of the common thread that joins us as humans and as participants in that diminishing natural world.
With an eye finely attuned to the smallest detail, White Song is filled with luminosity.
