About the Book
Forward from Barren Ground is a collection of poems that will take you through the journey of a poet's development. From the early inspirations of a grade school mind and the reaching attempts at overly-verbose poetry of a middle schooler to the angst of a struggling teenager and the comfort and solace found in college free verse, you will laugh and cry alongside Bobbie in her attempt to define poetry and rise from the Barren Ground of her inner struggles as a growing adolescent and artist.
