"A character in James Haug's Walking Liberty named Mike Gray climbs to the top of a small town water tower and, after being coaxed down from it by a policeman, is asked why he did it. He says, 'I needed some altitude./I thought I could maybe see where I lived.' I'm guessing this is also what Haug wants to do in his second collection of poems. He has a Whitmanian ambition to catch America in the fact, to see it whole, as from a certain altitude. . . Haug's flair for apt and surprising visual observation leavens all these poems." -- Alfred Corn, from the Foreword
