The poems and essays in The Kentucky Vein deal with our connection to nature, exploring lessons learned from tobacco fields under harsh sun, the lifecycle of quarried stone, childless tricycles, and the grass of a new subdivision asking where the foals have gone. This collection is a rich symphony of images drawn from the Kentucky landscape, people and history.
