Braided Creek: A Conversation in Poetry

Jim Harrison, Author, Ted Kooser, Joint Author Copper Canyon Press $15 (85p) ISBN 978-1-55659-187-7

Basing their recent correspondence entirely on poems shot back and forth from Jim Harrison's Montana and southern Arizona to Ted Kooser's Nebraska, the two poets have published the results in the epistolary collaboration Braided Creek: A Conversation in Poetry. The short, haiku-like poems, unattributed individually to either poet, admonish readers to ""Look again: that's not/ a yellow oak leaf on the path,/ but the breastplate of a turtle.""
