Description
F. Daniel Brackett is a new kind of story-telling poet. His voice is loud and clear throughout this book. The author takes his readers into the life of a young man growing up in a tiny village on the edge of the rainforest in Western Belize. You will travel with him as a teenager and go to work with him in the banana industrial village of "Cow Pen" in the south or in the Corozal Sugar Factory in the north. Then you will leave Belize and travel with him into other countries such as Guatemala, Mexico, Canada, and the United States. In Guatemala you'll imagine a trip to Lake Atitlan in the poem called "My Journey". In other poems, you can see glimpses of the Canadian Rockies, look deep into the blue waters of Lake Louise, visit the North Shores of Lake Superior, experience a cold winter night in Minnesota, and view Mount Shasta in Northern California.

You will laugh, cry, think and perhaps remember the first time you ever got a glimpse of someone to love.
