Neither Mountain Nor River: Fathers, Sons and an Unsettled Faith

By Mike Freeman (Riddle Brook Publishing; $16)

The blurb: Mike Freeman was raised with a passion for nature, a passion that came from his father, a man who could name a bird from its call and explain the life cycle of dragonflies.

Termination Dust

Susanna J. Mishler (Boreal Books, $18.95)

The blurb: Termination dust, the first high-altitude snowfall, marks the end of summer in Alaska. Rooted in the seasons with a sense of place, the poems in this collection employ an image-driven lyric and dream-like narrative to grapple with questions of death and belonging. A strange romance between inner and outer landscapes emerges from what increasingly seem like the prayers of an atheist. A tree becomes "a vascular connection / between kingdoms," and the human eye "a hole / hungry for small beauties." Full of vivid animal, human and ghostly encounters, the poems in "Termination Dust" are a kind of spiritual notebook for the unbeliever, forging their way to an earthbound grace.
