Winner of the Samuel French Morse Poetry Prize

"In a language of visceral accuracy made concise and memorable by metric structure, Ted Genoways tells an American story that is also emblematic of a piece of American history -- a history of expansion cruelly compressed by the Depression, a history of the movement from rural to urban to suburban life." -- From the Foreword
