With a heartsick nostalgia, Michael Campagnoli's poems search for an answer by listening to the "wonders, wonders, wonders" of the whisperings of ancestors. It is with a charming simplicity that he discusses the old life being replaced by the new, the hesitations and leaps forward taken by those in a culture with no option for staying the same. He juxtaposes this contemporary life with "a time before / moosetowners" as he explores the life lessons, family histories, home remedies, and the survival of ideas in this struggle between giving up and letting go.
