Animals of My Own Kind, Harry Thurston
Harry Thurston is one of Canada's best nature poets. He won the Evelyn Richardson Prize for non-fiction in 2004. Widely admired for his descriptive powers, for twenty-eight years Harry Thurston has trained his naturalist's eye carefully, sensuously and idiosyncratically on his rugged Maritime landscape.Incorporating selections from his last six books, together with new work, these are poems made of bone, rock and water. He lives in Tidnish Bridge, Nova Scotia.

Boxing the Compass, Richard Greene
Spiritually searching and intellectually rich, Richard Greene's third book shuns easy answers in poems of unfashionable eloquence comprised of colloquial textures, clear-eyed narratives, political subtexts, and no-nonsense introspection. Richard Greene has published two previous books of poetry. He teaches Creative Writing and British Literature at the University of Toronto. He lives in Cobourg, Ontario.
