View all copies of this ISBN edition:

"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.

About the Author:

Paul Zarzyski migrated west in 1973 from his homeground in Hurley, Wisconsin to study with poets Richard Hugo and Madeline DeFrees as the University of Montana, where he received a Master of Fine Arts degree and, later, taught creative writing.

He has toured Australia and England, recited at both the National Storytelling Festival and the National Book Festival, the Library of Congress and on Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion." He considers the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering his second home, and has been a featured performer there since 1987.

Paul lives west of Great Falls, Montana where poetry is his full-time work.


"Books like this are the reason poetry exists." -- Ed McClanhan, The Natural Man

"Paul Zarzyski listens to the heartbeat of creation." -- Anne Heath Widmark, Between Earth & Sky
