Horseshoe crabs, ghosts, tree men, black dogs, and daffodils. These characters come alive in Moon Tide, a collection of poems charting the course of a Cape Cod year. Set against the backdrop of a rapidly changing climate, a dramatic ocean and encompassing the starkest marsh and wildlife, each poem forms a vignette in the life of a rooted village told in seasons, vibrant with the unique culture of a southeastern New England village through its people and their lives.

Think of the lowest tides, debris from secret shipwrecks, hermit crabs, sailing traditions, and relentless winter cold. This collection will be recognizable locally by Cape Codders as their own, and universally by readers through their shared humanity.
