A Different Way to Look at Animals: My Review of Bless the Birds and Beasts by A. Rose Hill #FantasticFridayReads #Poetry #Inspiration

From the Back Cover

In a quiet and authentic voice, Rose captures the essential connection between the birds and beasts and our own past and present ‘-when the meadowlark sings” beside the graves of her ancestors. She proclaims “I want to live a western life at the foot of soaring mountains” and these poems give us clear eyed and precise moments of that life lived.

—Barbara Smith, Wyoming Poet Laureate 2024

Rose Hill probes the essence of animals and place, but she doesn’t touch on the usual subjects. No kitties and puppies here. She gets up close with guineas, tortoises, donkeys, snakes, spiders, and baboons. And she places them in the Seychelles, Morocco, Tanzania, and Michoacan. Be prepared to experience their character from a new

perspective.

—Nancy Curtis, Publisher Emerita, High Plains Press
