Brand new in shrink wrapped slip case. Essays. Donald Hall poet laureate of the United States from 2006 to 2007, has received the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in poetry, the Lenore Marshall Award, the 1990 Frost Medal from the Poetry Society of America, and the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. "In this collection of essays, a successor to Seasons at Eagle Pond ( LJ 12/87), the prize-winning poet and one-time poet laureate of New Hampshire laments the encroachment of suburbia, the coming of the "condosaurus," and the influx of senior citizens into his home state. Ranging in subject matter from the joy of the woodburning cookstove to the rural American to the New Hampshire political system, Hall writes with grace and humor, capturing the spirit of those who make "Live Free or Die" their motto."--Library Journal.
