Blood & Bone, Ice & Stone
 

ISBN: 978-1-894345-97-2


Glen Sorestad has been publishing poetry for thirty years and throughout his distinguished career he has relied upon the central themes of family, history, nature and friendship to guide his readers through his ever-expanding desire to name, and remember. Blood & Bone, Ice & Stone continues Sorestad’s poetic journey. Whether seeking his family roots in Norway, capturing the small epiphanies in nature as he travels, or shaping the memories of those whom he has met and befriended, his poems deliver a supple wisdom and unfettered honesty.

“Sorestad honours the ordinary in his poetry . . . helps us see meaning in everyday rituals.”
— JM.Bridgman, Prairie Fire
