About meI live in the foothills of the beautiful Adirondack Mountains in New York State, USA. When not reading I enjoy all kinds of skiing, hiking, and canoeing in the Adirondacks and British Columbia. I believe we all need to think globally but act locally to promote social justice and do what we can to preserve the environment for generations to come.

About my libraryI mostly read non-fiction, that includes poetry, history, science, health, and spiritual books, and a little science fiction. My collection of books is only partially cataloged on LibraryThing since it is a large collection of books. I use LibraryThing to track my reading interests.

.....especially "Why I Wake Early", "What I Have Learned So Far", and "I Ask Percy How I Should Live My Life".
No, I'm not familiar with Marge Piercy. I have really enjoyed some of Mary Oliver's work, though.
Have you read "Fall of Frost" by Brian Hall? Seems like something you might like, based on other books in your library. Hall uses the voice of fiction to construct a portrait of a real man, who refused to succumb to life's tragedies, and resurrected himself through poetry.....
