The Country I Come From is a sung hymn to the good earth, and a mourning prayer. The poems are meant to heal, and they do.
— Lauren Davis (Home Beneath the Church and The Missing Ones)
These poems look across the wide ranges of the land in its fullness and haunt the ordinary fabric of our lives. They carve an enduring two-track road through our existence.
— Diane Glancy (The Dream of a Broken Field and Island of the Innocent: a Consideration of the Book of Job)
