Book of the Week #1

Here Up Country: Poems of New Hampshire by James Hofford; illustrated by Joyce Paradis (AuthorHouse, 2008)

I received this book as a Christmas gift (Thanks, Ginny!) and it is perfect for the first book-of-the-week of the new year.

In her review of this book Rebecca Rule says, "You'd be hard pressed to find a more New Hampshire book." I agree.
It is divided into seasons -- not really by the calendar, more by the actual weather in northern NH. Beautiful pen and ink drawings by New Hampshire artist Joyce Paradis accompany the poems.

Speaking of accompaniment, James Hofford and his wife Ellen Gale have been creating video poetry. Check it out at Vid-po.com
