Unless You Count Birds (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
"Kathy Weihe tracks a range of voices and metaphors to bear witness for contemporary life. With wit and keen observation, she reveals the fear, malice, obsession, and quirkiness that comprise not only the 'criminal elements' in all of us but the diminishment of America. Yet she celebrates the wonder of the natural world and honors the courage of the chronically ill. There is no bird she won't count, no rock she won't climb, no room she won't enter. Her poems force readers to care as deeply as she does about what she finds." Patricia Kirkpatrick, author of Century's Road and Plowie: A Story from the Prairie.
