Marleen Bussma – Deep Tracks – [Book], Here comes the companion volume to the Marleen Bussma CD we reviewed last time…or vice versa!
A nice part of having poems printed out before you is being able to chew the words and digest them at your own speed. There’s a fine meal to be had here. On her site marleenbussma.com she performs nine additional poems beyond those found on the CD, but the book contains many more for your dining pleasure! And a pleasure it is, even when Bussma occasionally seeks to unsettle you. It’s healthy!
This is a collection Western aficionados of all kinds can get lost in and “found” in, since it captures so many aspects of the West we work to celebrate. Here it’s done with Bussma’s rare skill at interweaving imagery, lore and history. If you couldn’t tell by this point, I’m calling this one a book that can definitely be given to others. Do so! Thirty-seven poems on seventy-five pages, very highly recommended.
Book: $15 ppd from Marleen Bussma, 1094 Homestead Dr. E., Dammeron Valley, UT 84783.
