A collection of nineteen poems about the wildness of wolves, the kindness of trees, and the nobility of the hills features the work of Emily Dickinson, John Ciardi, Rachel Field, Langston Hughes, and others.

Framed between Aileen Fisher's ``Looking Around'' (``Bees/own the clover,/birds/own the sky...'') and Felice Holman's ``Who Am I?'' (``The trees ask me,/And the sky...''), 17 more poems, grouped as the title suggests and all of good quality (though Dickinson's ``I'll tell you how the sun rose'' easily outshines the rest). Only Durston's anthropomorphic ``The Wolf'' strikes a false note, and even that--like the others--is a perfect match for the insightful and beautifully composed color photo it accompanies. The photos are splendid--from the Sierra Club calendar-quality ``For Purple Mountains' Majesty,'' with a dramatic streak of golden aspens in the middle distance, to a city child with joyful face upturned for Langston Hughes's ``April Rain Song''; from a New England pasture to the tail of a diving whale. A celebration indeed. (Poetry/Picture book. 5-10) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
