We are proud to have received a review of this book by Greg Gerritt, NWF Representative of the Environmental Council of Rhode Island who wrote: “We all have different ways of communicating. Essayists describe what they see in prose, poets in poetry, and activists in testimony. Notable Works has collected Rhode Island poetry of the world around us, the emotions, the sensuality of the living world. They write of warm sunny days, winter nights, and the struggle to maintain a livable planet. The pairing with a listing of environmental activist groups gives those inspired by the poetry a place to take action, and those engaged in the struggle a place to catch their breath and remember why we do this work.”
