Reviews of Moose for Breakfast:
“These poems and essays warm us with their delicate glimmerings of light, propel us deep into mysterious landscapes—places where we walk the same paths with moose and bear. Here somewhere between meadow and mountain, between glaciers and green islands her words frame a space for us to briefly take in a free and wild breath.”
---Mike Burwell, University of Alaska adjunct professor of Creative Writing & Literary Arts and author of Cartography of Water
The simple beauty of the outdoors is so often lost on city folk. "Moose for Breakfast: Outdoor Poems and Essays" is the work of Nancy Owens Barnes, celebrating the great outdoors through entertaining and fine verse. For those with a like minded view and a taste for poetry, “Moose for Breakfast” is an enjoyable and recommended read.
--- Midwest Book Review
Replete with black and white photographs, haiku and longer poems and essays, “Moose for Breakfast” is the perfect companion to a morning of introspection and reflection. This is poetry of the most accessible kind. And yet, there is insight here, there is an awareness of the process and the beauty of life and how it invariably links to nature. The cold depth of a glacier, the feathery, bulbous wonder of a tadpole, the fireweed drawing life from ashes all have a story to tell. A delightful volume for quiet days.
