From the back cover: "A romantic and a populist, Jimmy Santiago Baca celebrates nature and creativity in Winter Poems Along the RIo Grande. These poems form an expansive meditation on Baca's spiritual life, punctuated always with his feet--repeatedly, rhythmically--as he runs the boulder-strewn trails along the banks of the Rio Grande each morning and contemplates his old life, his new love, his family and friends, those living and those dead, and where he prays to the Creator for the humility to become 'more river than myself.'"
