Above the Line
Like Thoreau, Joseph Bruchac is a disciplined writer, a serious student of nature, and a master of close observation. He brings his unique cultural concerns to all he experiences—especially the need to preserve a vulnerable ecology while affirming native traditions. In this fine collection we find an ancient village ruin, kingfishers and red-tail hawks in flight, burial places and a cedar flute. This is vintage Bruchac, a voice of hope and promise in a dark time.
