Description

The creek behind John Daniel’s home in western Oregon disappears underground in the summer months. Using this creek as a metaphor, Daniel reflects on his own seasonal changes from days as a student on LSD, rock climber, logger, and railroad worker, to life as a writer attentive to the evidence of the unseen.” The newest title in Milkweed's Credo series, this is a compelling, honest memoir about becoming a poet and writer. [Daniel’s voice is] fresh, self-reflective, and free of cant ... shows considerable originality, force, and descriptive art.” Kirkus Reviews on John Daniel's The Trail Home
