Tender Harvest, book
Many poems in Tender Harvest are inspired by a childhood in Illinois corn country, but subjects range from Latin Dancing to Native American petrolyphs. What Others have Said:
“Linda Whittenberg’s Tender Harvest is the real thing: an adult’s garden of verses rich in small-town story, down-home truth, soil-bred wisdom, land-of-little-rain beauty, and more—all interwoven with evocative detail, spiritual attentiveness, emotional intelligence, tough-minded clarity, and verbal music tuned to a well-tempered ear.” Michael L. Johnson, author of From Hell to Jackson Hole, a Poetic History of the American West, Dept. of English, University of Kansas.
