About The Book
These sonnets sing about a love of the landscape of New Hampshire and the people who rejoice in common in its sense of place.
At times, this earthly paradise is daunting, formidable and even threatening. Yet the skiing is divine. The mountains are sublime. The purity of the lakes is pristine. The small towns charm. The seacoast, though brief, connects to the vast Atlantic.
This modest poetic book refreshes the sonnet itself with songs and beautiful full-color images of landscapes inspired by the land and people who love New Hampshire.
