From the landscapes of the Great Lakes and the Allegheny mountains, to Ireland and it’s traditional music, these poems cover a lifetime of writing, and ask some thorny, yet imperative, questions.

A poem by Ruby Hoy is authentic stuff. Like the lakes she grew up around, the calm on the surface is actually a sum total of the teeming life and activity in its depths, and provides ample reflection for anyone who comes upon it, under sun or moon. – Jeff Schwaner, poet, editor, and more, whose latest book is The Drift.
