The "New York Times"-bestselling collection of poems from celebrated poet Mary Oliver
In "A Thousand Mornings," Mary Oliver returns to the imagery that has come to define her life's work, transporting us to the marshland and coastline of her beloved home, Provincetown, Massachusetts. Whether studying the leaves of a tree or mourning her treasured dog Percy, Oliver is open to the teachings contained in the smallest of moments and explores with startling clarity, humor, and kindness the mysteries of our daily experience.
Mary Oliver's latest book, "Dog Songs," was published in October 2013 by The Penguin Press.
