Limberlost Press is a small publisher of fine poetry books Based in Boise, Idaho. They produce limited runs of unpublished work by local and nationally known poets.
From the publisher: In this collection, Idaho’s former State Writer-in-Residence reflects upon the natural world outside his home in Lewiston, Idaho—the wildlife refuges, the Clearwater River, the Palouse, a dogwood tree in his yard, Buddhism and back roads. With awe and reverent regard, these poems explore the tensions and attractions between the natural and human worlds — the ways in which we are apart from yet a part of nature — and the need to live this paradox through in everday life. johnson
