From the Back Cover:

"Places in the World a Woman Could Walk is deeply felt and bitingly precise. The author's dual professions of farmer and poet give the stories two gifts: an intimate, gritty sense of life on the land and a skill with language that amounts to alchemy."--Anne Tyler

"A distinctive voice both quirky and down-to-earth, totally unsentimental and capable of rendering reality's baffling undertones."--Library Journal
