 The poems in Dancing with a Cowboy are charged with memories and hope, of family, old loves, nostalgia, and regret. Searching for shades of meaning that lurk around old, familiar corners, the poems are constructed from clues found there. Memories are reframed from a new point of reference, defining the curious, the sad, or the just plain ordinary. Tracking the hazardous and the happier moments of life, Rath writes the world alive, always catching its breath, carried forth by emotion.
Sara Rath is the author of four volumes of poetry, the novel Star Lake Saloon and Housekeeping Cottages, and five nonfiction books, including The Complete Cow. She has also written for television and film. She lives in Spring Green, Wisconsin.

Read from the Book

“Tomorrow every blade of grass and fallen leafwill be muted by a soft veil of icy whitegentling the damaged landscape. Even the raccoonlying dead along the road will be frosted,luminous. The cat stretches,sighs, curls closer to my thigh. In this dark nightwinter moves stealthily over the countryside,a V of geese on its leading edge, pulling itcloser, over the Canadian border.”—excerpt from “Killing Frost”(copyright Sara Rath.

Editorial Reviews

“Sara creates herself in the voice of these poems: vulnerable, desiring, tough-minded, and generous at once. Straightforward. Sure. And above all, genuine.”—Mark Doty
