Chinook and Chanterelle (Paperback)
Chinook and Chanterelle is Robert Michael Pyle's second full-length book of poetry. Rich in natural images, stories, and indelible episodes from the whole world around us, Pyle's poems also track the territory of loss and grief as it rises onto the higher ground of rediscovery, redemption, and re-enchantment. They exalt the ordinary even as they find the extraordinary in physical details that we too often look right through.
