The dark hills in this poetry are at home. Yes, they are shrouded in darkness in many respects, but that does not prevent them from providing a kind of nest that nurtures us. Each of these twenty-one poems was born between the Ohio and Monongahela Rivers in or near West Virginia’s northern panhandle. Since 2012, the poet, Marc Harshman, has been West Virginia’s Poet Laureate. He has read poetry in England and Wales and all over the U. S. He lives in West Virginia’s northern panhandle and has published multiple poetry books and numerous children’s books.
