Many rivers run through Nancy Schoenberger's third collection of poems, Long Like a River. From the Clark Fork ("its full house of trout the dream of a summer noon"), to the Mississippi ("long as its Indian name"), to the Amazon and Napo Rivers, these poems explore the poet's Deep South roots, plumbing memory and desire and paying homage along the way to Theodore Roethke and George Seferis.
