Will encourage youngsters to look around, to see their world with a new awareness - and maybe even write their own poems. 

 

 

There are no borders between humans and the land we share with all creation, between the razor wire of a prison and the flying geese overhead, between the sweet maple syrup and the hard work of processing it, between a trout’s smooth fins and the hands that touch them, between the shrill notes of spring peepers and a drumsong, between a departed elder and a handful of red earth, between the two worlds of a blue heron, between a song of thanksgiving and a deer who comes, between murdered forests and a bottle of booze. Although Bruchac is an accomplished storyteller he is, first of all, a poet. He dedicates this volume of new and selected poems “for all those who see this earth without maps.” No Borders is awesome. It will encourage youngsters to look around, to see their world with a new awareness—and maybe even write their own poems.
