Animals of My Own Kind is an outstanding introduction to the poetry of one of Canada's best nature poets. Widely admired for his descriptive powers, for twenty-eight years Harry Thurston has trained his naturalist's eye carefully, sensuously and idiosyncratically on his rugged Maritime landscape. In doing so, he has also staked out an emotional territory-a human inscape-remarkable for its hard-edged textures, fiercely-felt cadences, scientific unsentimentality, and empathetic range. Incorporating selections from his last six books, together with new work, these are poems made of bone, rock and water.Signal Editions
