Much like the “…record book hanging on a nail, brittle and teaming with little  histories,” Rachel Adams uses her poems to document and examine the past that  lives among us. Natural and personal histories populate the pages, as well as the  way the two often collide in both memory and lived experience. Hers is a landscape  awash in the generous gifts awaiting those who live life with their eyes and ears  wide open, and her quiet attention to detail brings the chapbook to life in a way that  “we feel the centrifugal spin of history” and the beauty of the eastern mountains as  she guides us between the covers.
