Kyger is a poet of place, with a strong voice-delicate, graceful, and never wasteful- her poems explore themes of friendship, love, community, and morality and draw on Native American myth as well as Asian religion and philosophy. Kygers love for poetry manifests itself in a grander scheme of consciousness-expansion and lesson, but always in the realm of the everyday. Edited with a foreword by Michael Rothenberg, and with an introduction by poet David Meltzer, this book is a marvelous overview of a wonderfully challenging and important poet.
