Chapbook; 36 pgs.; $8.00


In this verse novel, a woman in later life undertakes a pilgrimage to the swamp country of her youth to recover the memory of the man she loved. Through her days of introspection and immersion in the mystique of the bayous, she becomes delirious and falls ill. She returns to the Blue Ridge and to the man who has awaited her, to find that she is free for the first time in her life.
