Review: Beyond Heart Mountain

Beyond Heart Mountain - Lee Ann Roripaugh

Beyond Heart Mountain is a beautiful collection of poems full of voice. These poems are at their absolute best when they display the two worlds and cultures close to the author's heart. Roripaugh has a wonderful grasp of language and employs it here to create a series of poems that are thought-provoking, fun, and heartbreaking. An excellent debut collection; I look forward to reading more from the author.
