"Wolf Tracks on the Welcome Mat" veers dramatically from the rodeo arenas of Paul Zarzyski's youth, to nourishing translations of the natural world, oftentimes with unexpected tenderness and vulnerability. Zarzyski invites us into the wide-open spaces of Montana as well as the resilient territory of the heart and proves that either landscape becomes a source of infinite possiblities. These poems override the bleakest subject matter with a hopefulness that we can experience the uncommon expansion of our own spirit.
