Nance Van Winckel's wry, provocative slant on the world and her command of images and ideas enliven these stunning poems. Presented in two parts, Pacific Walkers first gives imagined voice to anonymous dead individuals, entries in the John Doe network of the Spokane County Medical Examiner's Records. The focus then shifts to named but now-forgotten individuals in a discarded early-1900s photo album purchased in a secondhand store. We encounter figures devoid of history but enduring among us as lockered remains, and figures who come with histories--first names and dates, and faces preserved in photographs--but who no longer belong to anyone.

Lynette is recuperating from botched Lasik surgery. Her eyesight is damaged, but as she “looks” back on the events of her past, she realizes she may not have seen them correctly when she was actually living them. Her husband’s death . . . was it a suicide? The bones unearthed on her uncle’s Montana ranch—are they of a steer? a mastodon? a dinosaur? Her beloved cousin Jessie—did she slip into addiction, and if so, where did the addict life take her? The dots of Lynette’s past are blurry, but she tries to focus and connect them and to feel her way toward a more accurate vision of the person she has been and may become. Lynette and her two cousins, Jessie and Buster, narrate the linked short stories that make up Boneland. Their fathers, brothers, grew up on the ranch in Montana, a place rich in dinosaur fossils that gives the book its title. Continuing an enormous task begun two generations back, one of the uncles is still reconstructing a fossil in the old hay shed. The cousins, meanwhile, carry on the family tradition of reconstructing the mysteries of the past. All three have trouble defining and maintaining their identities. And only they understand the idiosyncrasies of their family—which Nance Van Winckel treats as a character in this ingeniously linked collection of stories. The family is a creature reconstructed from the slippery events of everyone’s past. Fate is sudden and powerful in the life of this clan. A baby is dropped, a family drowned, a tsunami in Thailand changes the course of an already troubled life. Van Winckel releases time from strict adherence to chronology to reveal surprising correspondences. With shifting points of view and distinctive voices, these linked stories, in the hands of a master of the genre, capture the mutability of human experience and the meandering plot lines that make up our lives.

Poetry. The poems in Deborah Akers' PARTLY FALLEN reside quietly, yet not quite in peace. They summon a natural world that is unsentimental yet bound to the dearly flawed human arc. These spare lyrics reach for the essence of what we know as sensory beings, and perhaps what we can dream beyond the senses. Reading PARTLY FALLEN, the reader walks a narrow yet deeply rendered path into the world's broken heart. "In PARTLY FALLEN, each poem is an act of divining—a deeply lyric dowsing for what is elemental. With taut and resonant metaphors, Deborah Akers calls us to see the world beneath surfaces, a world wherein a rainbow is a 'spectral bruise,' wherein a 'ragged crow / appears newly spat / from an earth god's maw.' Richly and subtly musical, Akers' work brings us compelling messages from our own depths. Each poem reveals the poet's fierce willingness to delve. Each offers us the chance to accompany her as she plunges 'into original substance.'"—Paulann Petersen, Oregon Poet Laureate Emerita "Deborah Akers' PARTLY FALLEN is a superbly realized, significant book, a worthy addition to Airlie Press's fine series. 'entering the dense / family-silence of trees / my steps arouse / wings, which wake...'/ 'the flock rises / pulsing like an organ gone / adrift from its body...' Again and again, PARTLY FALLEN vividly evokes moments of experience in which discord prevails, and again and again the poems evoke a return to harmony. 'all too soon you will breach / the ocean's embrace / face your journey's / blank horizon // but tonight you drift / in the black waves / fallen stars / wrecked and drowsing / lit with the soft remnants / of radiance.'"—Ralph Salisbury, Pulitzer nominee, C.E.S. Wood Award Recipient, Winner Riverteeth Book Prize, Rockefeller Bellagio Award, two time Oregon Book Award Finalist "In Deborah Akers' PARTLY FALLEN, being open to the world is a constant prayer as she celebrates the persistence of nature in an imperfect world. These poems will gently lead you to a quiet but inspired place where salmon live 'a solitary life' until they are called home, a murmuration of starlings rising above the Astoria bridge pulses like a giant heart, and even stale sunflower seeds tossed out to feed common sparrows signal intimations of Wordsworthian transcendence."—Barbara Drake, author of Morning Light, Peace at Heart, Driving One Hundred, and other works of prose and poetry

Fiction. A 99-year-old great- grandmother tells the story of her family through a series of photographs, notes, and family memorabilia, including old ads "altered" by a bed-ridden aunt. The photographs are all captioned, some at great length, by "Grandy," the family matriarch. They describe life in Butte, Montana, surrounded by the great copper mines of the early 20th Century, and, later, by the environmental devastation left behind when the mines failed. Here, in 1999, as the town awaits the Y2K meltdown and a "virgin birth" is apparently about to occur, Grandy hurries to divest herself of the secrets concerning both her good and bad contributions to Butte and her own descendants.

Winner of the 1994 Lamont Poetry selection of The Academy of American Poets. "Kelly has a talent for coaxing out the world's ghosts and then fixing them in personal landscapes of fear and uncertainty.... Smoothed by nuances of sound and rhythm, her poems exude an ambiguous wisdom, an acceptance of the sad magic that returns us constantly to the lives we might have led."--Library Journal

For over one hundred years, our culture has promoted dieting—with the goal of losing weight—as the acceptable way to eat. With this aim of weight loss, a diet determines your eating choices and in turn creates a thought system that prevents you from trusting your natural ability to make the right choices about eating. Our inner wisdom, or best self, quietly speaks to us through intuition, gut feelings, physical cravings and thoughts about the present moment, whereas beliefs focused on specific outcomes, such as weight loss-focused dieting, push their way to the forefront of our minds and block our ability to enjoy the present. The purpose of this book is to remove the barriers preventing you from accessing and trusting your own best self in choosing and creating each eating experience. Eat provides the tools you need to remove the thoughts that are obstructing your inner wisdom and replace those thoughts with ones that will guide you back to everyday eating choices that stem from your best self. Linda R. Harper’s simple five-step guide will help you access your best self and discover your natural and healthy relationship with food, leaving the rules of dieting behind.
