Reviews

The elegance and power of poetry meet the substance of the most important issue of our time in Rob's brilliant book.

- THOM HARTMANN

"You ask the essential question, I wonder where the howl is."

- KATHLEEN DEAN MOORE
“Although most of us acknowledge intellectually that a planetary ecological collapse is underway, many of us do not engage emotionally. Rob Lewis is here to change that. He listens with the ear of the heart to the disappearing voices of the natural world. There is sorrow in these poems and essays, but there is even more joy. At once passionately political and deeply wise, this is work that aims to heal what has gone missing in humans themselves.” 
- JAN ZWICKY

These poems move me to my very core.

- JEREMY LENT
