Praise for High Peaks

 

“More than accessing, David Crews has put his boots and his mind on the ground as, mountain by distant mountain, he climbed and then descended all 46 of the region’s highest. ‘Why / don’t you take pictures,’ people ask in one poem. Because a picture leaves everything but getting there out. Because, before the breathless view at the top, which can be glorious, there is the long, breathy effort of getting there.”

 

  - Roger Mitchell, author of Lemon Peeled the Moment Before: New and Selected

 

 

“Study and mystery guide the lover in these poems, enriching both the journalism and the literature of the Adirondacks, one of the best kept, equally care-worn, secrets of the Eastern half of the nation’s natural history. Crews’ sharp tempos match the walking-rhythms and dissonances of his climbs, spliced against lyric microseconds of surprise, and faith in the visual. His is a country of scars, of winds strong enough to erase a [rock]face and the memory of it.”

 

  - Judith Vollmer, author of The Water Books
