Scott J. Brooks has achieved a great sense of tender and timeless poetry. Whether readers come from small rural Wisconsin towns or remote villages in Turkey or Japan, they will feel cleansed with the haunting purity and mystical echo of these poems. The craft he uses to describe nature and its unique kaleidoscope of wonder pulls you so close that there is no longer a subject-object relationship with the poems, but rather a pure experience of being the poems themselves. While reading Brooks' poetry, the soul slowly rewinds itself back to the innocence of childhood and reclaims the beauty of looking at the world through excitement soaked eyes and mountain grinning joy. This is a splendid collection, deserving wide readership for generations to come.
