3.0 out of 5 stars Story in Clay 1 Mar 2008
By Himri - Published on Amazon.com
If Holland could paint, then may be he would have a self portrait in paint on the back of this book - but I am glad that he chose to put it in a poem. Quite an idea!

'Anasazi Women' is a beautiful poem about a tribe, their lifestyle told not only from the pots they left but also from their arthritic skeletal ruins.

I could not relate to the rest of the poems in the collection.
