Rock Tree Bird

Rock Tree Bird


Twyla Hansen's Rock • Tree • Bird, a collection of poems by the former State Poet of Nebraska covers significant emotional territory while remaining firmly grounded in the landscape. From memories of the isolation and beauty of growing up on a farm, to a burgeoning awareness as a teenager of the economic and cultural forces waged against family farming, to coming to terms with the legacies of her parents after their passing, and, finally, arriving at an appreciation of nature and the environment wherever and whenever she finds it, Hansen offers poems that are alternately sad, sweet, funny, moving, human, and humane. 2018 Nebraska Book Award ​winner, and 2018 WILLA Literary Award winner.

Author: Twyla M. Hansen

Length: 90 pages, paperback
