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.
