Route 4, Box 358
In this debut full-length collection of poetry by Dudgrick Bevins, the poet's memories of his youth become your own. Bevins has crafted not only a tale of personal history but a kind of archetypal roadmap through rural Appalachia where he mines the terrain of his past for remnants of beauty forged among the smothering haze of misty mountaintops. Family, religion, and sexuality intertwine like vines of kudzu strangling old growth trees.
