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.
