wilderness poetry, poetry about nature, poems about paddling, poems about camping, poems about wildness, poetry of landscape, meditative poetry

by Brad Thomas Batten

A collection of poetry that speaks to the wonders of nature and the spiritual and psychological landscape of those who venture into its depth, Burntroot takes its readers on a profound journey. Inspired by a two-week canoe trip into Ontario’s Algonquin Park, one of Canada’s wildest and most awe-inspiring locations, its poems describe a freedom and beauty that too few get to experience in these hectic modern times. Burntroot will leave readers with a sense of reverence and an awakening to the beauty of life, both within and without.
