Texte du rabat

Michael Delp conjures with his writing the intense pull of nature on Michiganders and he allows the reader to discover-or rediscover-the marvels of life and sport amidst the Great Lakes. This collection of new work, along with some of Delp's important earlier work, will inspire anyone with a fondness for water, fishing, and Michigan's great outdoors.



Delp's writing is richly nuanced and sharply imaged with an authenticity that comes only from someone native to such experiences. His engaging portraits of Michigan, its freshwater landscapes, and their many invocations can function as metaphor for larger philosophical and ecological issues, but the first aim of The Last Good Water is to draw readers back to nature and allow them to relish its splendor. This collection is an important addition to the library of the creative, the ecocritical, and above all, the outdoorsmen and women of the Midwest.



Résumé
In this collection of poetry and prose, Michael Delp takes the reader back to nature and details his spiritual awakening within the freshwater of Michigan.
