Sea Trails is out!
Pris Campbell's latest collection of poetry, SEA TRAILS, is now available from
Lummox and Amazon.com. This 100 page collection details a cruise Pris took in
1977 aboard a 22 foot sloop called Little Adventure, down the east coast from
Mass. to Florida. The book includes Log Entries from the trip as well as charts
and other interesting tidbits. It also includes poetry from one of the best
poets active in the small press and online, to date. Copies are available on the
Lummox site for only $15 plus postage and on Amazon. EBook copies are available
in PDF format for $7. Email Lummox for more info. If you like to sail, enjoy
good poetry, and still wear those vagabond shoes, you'll enjoy this book.
Lummox Press Release
(Note: At Amazon search under both the book title and author name to find it)
“We never see things in themselves, only things as they appear to our own
particular sensibilities, moods, and associations. Nowhere is that clearer than
in poetry, and nowhere in poetry is that clearer than in Pris Campbell’s new
book, Sea Trails. Part travelogue and part poetic narrative, the book
brilliantly counter-poses poetic revelations of the speaker as she moves from
“in love” to “out of love” and prose descriptions of a journey down the
American Intracoastal Waterway, including details of the physical workings of
the journey and of the landscapes which sustain her. An emotional, sensual, and
visceral joy to read.”
How interesting to actually see the source of inspiration from which Pris
Campbell riffs in this fascinating collection. A master at the construction of
tightly woven narratives, her work is like the boat itself upon which the reader
sails along beside her on this incredible journey.
Pris handed me a one of her pre-release copies yesterday. I'm not a big reader
but I love boating. I couldn't put the book down even when my bedtime came. I'm
already rereading it and am telling all of my friends they have to read it, too.
