The Ginseng Hunter's Notebook records a vital and eccentric dance for life. In poems of brilliant texture and intimate gesture, the poet, wounded yet resilient, evokes a music as compelling and fresh as birdsong. In her love of language, and in her reasons for travel, Deanne Lundin calls to mind Elizabeth Bishop as she searches for something to name home, and for the knowledge to solve the equations of the human heart. Here is the wayfarer's journal in which each item has been carefully observed and duly entered as though it might harbor the one true remedy for the soul's longing.
