This chapbook of poems captures the wisdom a rower can gain from early mornings spent on a river. The poems take advantage of muscular language to tackle issues of loss, love, and triumph. As the water reflects, so does the writer about her past, other writers, the people and animals she sees, and the way they all connect.
