I don't read a whole lot of poetry, and don't usually have much to say about it, but I was given this book and ended up really enjoying it. It's divided into three sections, and the poems in each section sort of have a different theme. There are poems about the place in Montana where the author is from, poems that take place in the southwest and are mostly about her relationship with her husband, and poems that are stories, slices of life that I didn't assume were about the author personally. In a way, they remind me a bit of Mountain Goats songs, because Greene uses a lot of really specific imagery, and even when the specifics are not familiar, what she is saying is relatable.
