The set piece of Judith Moffett's third collection, Tarzan in Kentucky, dramatizes the poet's lifelong struggle to create a tolerable peace between the Fundamentalism that formed her and the evolutionary biology she was convinced by in college. Other poems are located on her hundred-acre Kentucky farm, once worked by her father's family, now a young forest filled with coyotes, deer, and birds.
