    Title: A Common Name for Everything
    By (author): Sarah Wolfson
    ISBN10-13: 1950584135 : 9781950584130
    The poems in A Common Name for Everything build idiosyncratic worlds around the themes of nature, home, parenting, and naming—worlds that are at once poignant and absurd: a professional namer of lakes explains his standards; the rural gods are given names; a study of sheep results in loneliness. Steeped in sound play and borrowing academic language to create a specimen lens, these poems bask in the local as they seek to name even the commonest earthly things.

    Title: A Field Guide to Murder & Fly Fishing
    Sub-title: Stories
    By (author): Tim Weed
    ISBN10-13: 0997452846 : 9780997452846
    A high mountain lake in the Colorado Rockies is the point of departure for these stories of dark adventure, in which vividly drawn landscapes provide an immersive setting for narratives about coming of age, altered states, moral slippage, romantic love, sexual jealousy, and impenetrable loneliness. Fishing guides, amateur sportsmen, teenage misfits, scientists, mountaineers, and expatriates embark on disquieting journeys of self-discovery in far-flung places: the hazardous tidal waters of Nantucket, the granite quarries and ski slopes of New Hampshire, Venezuela's Orinoco basin, the ancient squares and alleyways of Rome and Granada, the summit of an Andean volcano, and the tension-filled streets of eastern Cuba. Classic in feel and fresh in approach, the stories in A FIELD GUIDE TO MURDER AND FLY FISHING speak to the inextricability of exterior and interior experience; to the powerful magnetism of solitude versus friendship, brotherhood, and love; and to the urgent need for a more direct engagement with the planet that sustains us.   A FIELD GUIDE TO MURDER AND FLY FISHING has been shortlisted for the New Rivers Press Many Voices Project, the Autumn House Press Fiction Prize, and the Lewis-Clark Press Discovery Award. Stories in the collection have appeared in Colorado Review, Gulf Coast, Saranac Review, and many other literary magazines, reviews, and anthologies. "The Afternoon Client" won the 2013 Writer's Digest Popular Fiction Awards, and "Tower Eight" was the Grand Prize winner for Outrider Press's The Mountain anthology. Other stories have been nominated for the Pushcart and Best of the Net anthologies and shortlisted for the Tucson Festival of Books Literary Awards, the Lightship International Literature Prize, the Glimmer Train Short Story Award for New Writers, the Rick DeMarinis Short Fiction Award, the Alligator Juniper Award for Short Fiction, and the Richard Yates Short Story Awards.

    Reviews:
    "In the short-story collection A Field Guide to Murder & Fly Fishing (Green Writers), Vermont author Tim Weed proves himself a skilled creator of a sense of place, whether he’s writing about New Hampshire, Nantucket, New England elsewheres, or Cuba, Colorado, or El Salvador. His characters, mostly men, mostly in a period of adulthood before middle age, wrestle with doubt, with themselves. In "Scrimshaw", a Cape Cod carpenter with a penchant for scrimshaw flies every day to Nantucket to work on multimillion dollar mansions. Weed gives a narrow-eyed look at the island's summer inhabitants, dripping wealth, and a carpenter's sense of a jobsite, its Tyvek and pallets of shingles. Of one house there, he writes, “It was a sprawling, well-built place: tightly seamed trim, hardwood floors and cupboards, no cost cutting on materials or technique, even the invisible stuff that was obvious only to a carpenter. A few stories drift into magical realism, and each story deposits one definitively into a geography, of mind and map." -- Boston Globe

    Title: A Hundred Million Years of Nectar Dances
    By (author): Richard Jarrette
    ISBN10-13: 099608729X : 9780996087292
    A Hundred Million Years of Nectar Dances is a poetry cycle of singular beauty in nature and reveals an inherent Buddhist quality. Jarrette's poems are clear and meditative, unfailingly beautiful. They are self-aware but not self-obsessed, singing with the ecstatic humility of a mystic or shaman as they join all the subjects of a life well lived within nature that is ever present. The poems dance and sing and play and rest with their subjects to present a truly beautiful vision of the world. The ending poem, "The Pond," is perfectly representative of all the others before it, and yet its impressive scope doesn't rob any glory from what precedes it.  The poems create their own world where they solve their own problems, build memories, and speak to each other. Richard Jarrette's book is a manifestation of the inherent conversation between human nature and the wild around us that sustains indivisible mutual integrity and ceases at our peril.
    About The Author:

    Reviews:
    This profound, grave, and original book investigates all being, and all attention, through one scarred, silent, four-footed master of the pasture.  Richard Jarrette's Beso will, I predict, take his place beside his fellow immortals--Jammes', Jimenez' and Nasruddin's own donkeys, E.B. White's pig, Christopher Smart's cat, Umberto Saba's goat...yet like any living creation, Beso stands also alone, unlike anything but himself. Simply and without reservation, from first page to last, I am entirely taken and altered by these spare, wise, hauntingly conceived, brilliantly crafted poems. -- Jane Hirshfield
    Richard Jarrette's voice is unique. I don't know anyone writing in a manner similar to his. There are echoes of Merwin, Rumi, the Chinese, but the texture and tone are all his own. The poems that pre-date Beso the Donkey are building to the miracle of what he accomplished there. But these have their own delights and mysteries, their illuminations and wonder. There is so much richness in his vision and a sense of the sacred along with an accomplished grace that is rare to find these days. It is wonderful to enter these poems. -- Joseph Stroud, author of Of This World: New and Selected Poems
    Richard Jarrette has once again raised the hairs on my neck and sent a shiver down my spine with his remarkable new poems. I am deeply moved by and grateful for his outstanding poetry. -- Sam Hamill, author of Habitation: Collected Poems and Crossing The Yellow River

    Title: An American Harvest
    Sub-title: How One Family Moved From Dirt-Poor Farming To A Better Life In The Early 1900s
    By (author): Cardy Raper
    ISBN10-13: 099626762X : 9780996267625
    Green Writers Press is proud to announce the first book in our place-based history series, An American Harvest: How One Family Moved from Dirt-Poor Farming to a Better Life in the Early 1900s, by Vermont writer and University of Vermont professor emerita, Cardy Raper, PhD.   Sometimes sad, sometimes humorous, sometimes scandalous, An American Harvest is the real-life tale of seven brothers and one sister who grew up dirt poor on a worn-out tobacco farm in North Carolina, but, with strong parental guidance, went on to achieve distinguished careers in a variety of fields.   A n American Harvest is largely in the format of discourse among the Raper siblings as they agree and disagree about their farming childhood together, and how that childhood shaped their skills to attain remarkable success in a diversity of professions. Their conversations derive from a tape recorded at a family reunion several decades ago, in 1965. They speak of what it was like to live the uncertain life of a growing family in the rural South trying to eke out a living from eroded land without the conveniences of running water, electricity, central heating, or mechanical devices during the early part of the twentieth century. They recall a childhood of relentless farm chores, arduous food preparations, strict moral mandates, strong religious teachings, along with a smattering of scandalous tales and experiences. The Raper children developed a yen to achieve higher education, even though their parents never exceeded grade school.    The author reflects occasionally on the topics discussed, but she lets the oral history of a remarkable family from rural North Carolina do the talking. This account takes the reader to a time of change that could likely happen only in America. Ms. Raper has recorded a wonderfully authentic swatch of Southern Americana, ranging from tobacco raising to hog butchering, old-time revivals to neighborhood corn shucking, and clannish feuds, to helping one's neighbors in times of need.     The manuscript, including 34 photographs, is organized in 13 chapters. Chapter headings are derived from aphorisms the siblings had to learn as children
    About The Author:
    Cardy Raper received a Masters in Science degree from The University of Chicago and a PhD from Harvard University. She has been extensively published in national and international scientific journals and was named a University of Vermont Research Professor Emerita in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics. She was recently honored by being elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She is the author of A Woman of Science: An Extraordinary Journey of Love, Discovery, and the Sex Life of Mushrooms.
    Reviews:
    "In the tradition of the Foxfire Series, a wonderfully authentic swatch of Americana ranging from tobacco raising to hog butchering, old-time revivals to community corn-shucking, and clannish feuds to mutual help in times of need . . . a loving evocation of a hard way to live. I loved these stories." -- Howard Frank Mosher, author of Walking to Gatlinburg
    Cardy Raper ably shows how the family's success was forged in an environment marked by incessant hard work, strong moral and ethical values, active civic engagement, and perhaps above all a thirst for education. The work offers a window into an American way of life that seems long ago and far away a century later. -Clifford M.

    Title: Another World
    Sub-title: Poetry and Art by Young People
    Edited by: Ann Gengarelly, Tony Gengarelly Introduction by: Chard deNiord
    ISBN10-13: 1950584151 : 9781950584154
    "This must be another world." These opening lines of Hannah Christensen's poem introduce us to Another World from The Poetry Studio. The Poetry Studio, founded in 1995 by Ann Gengarelly, is indeed "another world" that inspires imagination and discovery. According to prize-winning poet/professor, Bruce Smith: "The students' poems...are cracks in the construction, cures for the hurt, color for the bleakness, and challenges to the system. These poems of love and rage are counterforces to unfeeling and silence. They are maps to be consulted when navigating the world..." The unfettered imagination of the poets is also represented in their compelling drawings and the artful presentation of their writing. Another World is a testament to the wisdom and insight, the joy and compassion expressed by these young poets and artists.
    Chard deNiord is the Poet Laureate of Vermont and author of five books of poetry, most recently Interstate, The Double Truth, and Night Mowing. His book of essays and interviews with seven senior American poets (Galway Kinnell, Ruth Stone, Lucille Clifton, Donald Hall, Robert Bly, Jack Gilbert, and Maxine Kumin) titled Sad Friends, Drowned Lovers, Stapled Songs, Conversations and Reflections on Twentieth Century American Poets was published by Marick Press in 2011. His poems and essays have appeared widely in such journals and anthologies as The Pushcart Prize and Best American Poetry, the Kenyon Review, The New England Review, The American Poetry Review, The New Ohio Review, AGNI, The Harvard Review, The New York Times, Ploughshares, and Salmagundi. He is the co-founder and former program director of the New England College MFA Program in Poetry and a trustee of the Ruth Stone Trust. For the past 19 years he has taught English

    Title: Between the Shadows
    Sub-title: A Book of Poems
    By (author): Daniel A. Heller
    ISBN10-13: 099745282X : 9780997452822
    Many of the poems in this book come from the dark corners of my heart. By giving verbal form to these ideas I hope to be able to at least look at them if not actually confront and diminish them. They reflect many of my regrets, sadness, disappointments (often in myself), and perceptions of the world in which I live. If any reader can identify with some of these ideas, then he or she will know that he or she is not alone. That in itself would make the poems purposeful. In my efforts to become a better human being, I have come across Buddhism. The Buddhist core values of compassion, equanimity, and kindness are exactly what I have needed. Readers will find reflections of my religious beliefs in a number of these works. Poems rattle around in my mind, sometimes for weeks, until I have NO choice but to let them out.  Many of these poems are organic. I am not clear on the form they will take until I actually sit down to write. Others are attempts to use form, meter, and rhyme, whatever feels right. These lyrics give voice to my inner demons, and allow me to share them with the world. So I send them out, hoping that they may bring someone insight or relief.

    By (author): Leslie Rivver

    Have you ever had the feeling you weren't loved by the momma God gave you?  Lucky for Gracie, she has two mommas.  One cares for her every day while the other goes off to work.  One is happy, strong and free while the other is sad, dark and depressed.  One is black.  The other is white.  One Gracie must leave.   Grace Callaway lives down deep in Alabama during a turbulent time of protests, boycotts, and sit-ins.  It is a segregated world where black and white won't mix.  But don't tell that to Ida Bell and Grace.   Ida Bell has been Gracie's nanny since the day she came home from the hospital in a shoebox.  They love each other like a real mother and daughter.  Even way more.  But the summer Grace turns ten, her white momma decides they need to move away.   Moving means just one thing:  leaving Ida Bell.  Grace knows she cannot go.  She knows she cannot let go.  How can she leave the person who raised her when her real momma couldn't?  How can she leave the person who taught her how to walk, and who took her to her first day of school when her real momma wouldn't?  If she leaves, who will keep her secrets?  Who will hold her?  Who will love her? She can't leave.  She won't.  There must be a way to stay.

    "Leslie Rivver's Blackberries and Cream is the deeply moving story of a special friendship between a wise and loving black woman named Ida Bell and a young white girl named Gracie from a prominent but troubled family. Set in a small town in Alabama in the 1960s, this powerful coming-of-age story for middle-grade children deals honestly and lovingly with issues ranging from the Civil Rights Movement to death, and family dysfunction to our purpose in the world." - Howard Frank Mosher, author of Stranger in the Kingdom
    "Brimming with wisdom and mischief, this tender, heartfelt celebration of an abiding friendship between a white girl and her black caregiver in 1960s Alabama reminds us that the love we experience in childhood has the power to sustain us through a lifetime of change." -Irene Latham, author of Leaving Gee's Bend -- Irene Latham
    "Leslie Rivver's bildungsroman Blackberries and Cream features the story of 10-year-old Grace Callaway who is hard at work making sense of her world in 1965 Alabama. . . .This story of the bonds between mothers and daughters, blood and otherwise, and of loyalty and friendship is not to be missed. It is as sweet as the blackberries and cream that he characters enjoy and that lends its image to the title." -Darcie Abbene, Vermont Woman magazine -- Darcie Abbene, Vermont Woman magazine

    Sub-title: poems
    By (author): Ralph Black
    ISBN10-13: 0999499572 : 9780999499573
    At a time when the human ravages on the planet seem to be reaching a crescendo, the poems in Bloom and Laceration offer lamentations to a fragmented world and celebrations of beauty's fierce persistence. Here are lyric poems on the vicissitudes of family played out against wild (and domesticated) nature. Here are long meditations on passing through, on glimpsing, on transience and transcendence. From Southern California to Louisiana's Gulf Coast, to the south of France, and especially to the hills and woods of Upstate New York, Black's poems are full of wonder and ferocity, exuberance and sorrow.
