not yet rated|write a review
The first full-length collection in more than a decade from the award-winning poet and author of the bestselling novel Gap Creek.

Robert Morgan has won acclaim for sonorous poems rooted in his native Blue Ridge Mountains that feature taut, forceful, often haunting imagery and carefully chiseled phrases. The poems in Terroir build on his earlier work but reach out in several new directions, exploring memory, family narratives, the natural world of trees and forest animals, and the poetry of work. Readers of Morgan's fiction will recognize many places, themes, and voices, while fans of his poetry will see a fresh energy in poems drawing on science and folklore, Native American history, and music. These elegantly written poems celebrate everything from the bonds of friendship and community to the fleeting sparkle of a drop of rain, discovering wonder in the local and familiar, the sacred in the everyday.
