"These are poems that testify not only to Rick Campbell's ever-increasing skill as a poet, but to his
tenderness, his courage, his deep appreciation for exactly the way water flows, light falls, and the
many ways we honor and dishonor our workaday lives." --Robert Dana
"Campbell's poems are personal, even intimate, but their metaphors and meanings have a broad and
tough reality." --Iron Horse Literary Review
In his third collection of poetry, Rick Campbell ranges from baseball to teaching to Florida landscape. The history of mental illness in his family is a backdrop to these beautiful lyrics.
