Ob, Peter Reading, 1999
This book followed various birding trips to the Gulf of Mexico, Canada, and the mountains of Arizona, where he saw species of birds and migrations on a scale new to him. While many poems celebrate these journeys, others treat death and pseudo-death, suicide, and even a funeral in very personal and introspective terms.
