Limited Capacity seats available

While much attention focuses on the border between Mexico and the United States, this book looks at the northeast, where Canada and New England share borders, boundaries, blood, and heritage. The land is disputed in places, in others the US and Canada share responsibility, and Tribal Lands reside as sovereign nations within their borders. The poems, essays, and short stories in this anthology explore the things that divide, the bridges between, and the intense love of this rugged region the people hold in common.

“...like pulling a deep, revivifying breath into the body." Patricia Smith, author of Shoulda Been Jimi Savannah

"...a book pulsing with the heartbeat of the land.” Chris Benjamin, Managing Editor of Atlantic Books Today

“...a refreshing change from the literary and cultural barriers that we all too often allow to come between us.” Joseph Bruchac, winner, Native Writers Circle of the Americas Writer of the Year
