Postcards from Montana
by Brooke Herter James

Overview


Postcards from Montana is a woman's testimonial of love for a place.  How to put into words and images that love when the place is so vast, so unfathomable in its beauty?  "I write these 'postcards' not to claim fluency or belonging," says poet Brooke Herter James, "but rather to set down exactly what I see . . . ."  And what a joy it is to "see" love and place through the camera lens and praiseful language of a spirit attuned to what others might take for granted.  These aren't simply postcards from Montana: these are postcards from the heart.  Thank you, Brooke Herter James, for waking me again in the paradise of gratitude.
