West River: Poems by Nelson, John S.

Format: Saddle Stitched

Published by South Dakota State Poetry Society, 2019

The poems of West River transport readers to rural spaces while avoiding the trappings of sentimentality and plastic nostalgia. Moreover, readers are in the care of a poet who pays attention, who moves beyond the obvious and the easy. With vivid imagery, subtle humor, and clear language, these poems chronicle the particularities of everything from chickens to arrowheads, from horses to hay, from swearing to the Oahe Dam.
