Coal, Baby

4.50  ·  Rating details ·  4 ratings  ·  0 reviews
The poetry in COAL, BABY reflects Anne Barnhill’s growing up years spent in the beautiful, wild country of West Virginia. Living in the mountains and observing Appalachian culture inspired the poems and they are both stark and untamed, much like the hills themselves. This chapbook is Barnhill’s tribute to the country that she holds forever in her heart.
