    Ted Kooser describes the place he calls home in the rolling hills of southeastern Nebraska known as the Bohemian Alps. Nothing is too big or too small for his attention. Memories of his grandmother's cooking are juxtaposed with reflections about the old-fashioned outhouse on his property. In the end, what makes life meaningful for Kooser are the ways in which his neighbors care for one another and how an afternoon walking with an old dog, or baking a pie, or decorating the house for Christmas can summon memories of his Iowa childhood. This writer is a seer in the truest sense of the word, discovering the extraordinary within the ordinary, the deep beneath the shallow, the abiding wisdom in the pithy Bohemian proverbs that are woven into his essays.

    Recently appointed as the new U.S. poet laureate, Ted Kooser has been writing & publishing poetry for more than forty years. In the pages of this book, Kooser brings those decades of experience to bear. Here are tools & insights, the instructions (and warnings against instructions) that poets--aspiring or practicing--can use to hone their craft, perhaps into art. Using examples from his own rich literary oeuvre & from the work of a number of successful contemporary poets, the author schools us in the critical relationship between poet & reader, which is fundamental to what Kooser believes is poetry's ultimate purpose: to reach other people & touch their hearts.
