"Funny and tender beneath a wry and gruff seen-it-all veneer, Harrison contemplates death, discerns divinity in every stone and leaf, and nobility in ordinary lives, and laughs at our attempts to separate ourselves from the rest of nature.""Booklist""His poems succeed on the basis of an open heart and a still-ravenous appetite for life.""The Texas Observer"Now in paperback, Jim Harrison's best-selling poetry book "In Search of Small Gods" is where birds and humans converse, autobiographies are fluid, and unknown gods flutter just out of sight. In terrains real and imaginedfrom remote canyons and anonymous thickets in the American West to secret basements in World War II EuropeHarrison calls upon readers to live fully in a world where "Death steals everything except our stories.""Maybe the problem is that I got involved with the wrong crowd ofgods when I was seven. At first they weren't harmful and only showedthemselves as fish, birds, especially herons and loons, turtles, a bobcatand a small bear, but not deer and rabbits who only offered themselvesas food. And maybe I spent too much time inside the water oflakes and rivers. Underwater seemed like the safest church I couldgo to . . .

His work has been translated into two dozen languages. He lives in Arizona and Montana."
