Click to preview Burnt Coat photo book

This book is meant to be a love song to Swan's Island, Maine, and in the process to convey some childhood memories mixed with current longings to BE THERE! Most poems were spontaneous and based on the photos appearing with them, but a couple have been in the works for a few years (The Old Finn, for example) I hope you enjoy them. All profits from the book ($5 on each, the cost of Blurb printing is $28.95) go to the Swan's Island Library which after having burned down two years ago is now being rebuilt!!!!

Thanks for looking.......OR BUYING!

Wes, I'll need to buy a copy as a gift to my husband, your cousin... and I know he'll get misty-eyed when he sees and reads it. This place is in his blood, too. Then, I'll need four more copies--one for each of our children--so they'll have at least an inkling of what made their dad and you the men you are today. This is amazing! Absolutely amazing!
