Writing of a life ruled, like most, by the elements, William Kloefkorn has already given us This Death by Drowning (water) and Restoring the Burnt Child (fire). In this third installment of his projected four-part memoir, the poet focuses on earth in exploring in the most personal terms the perpetual human struggle between building foundations and abandoning them, digging in and moving on. Whether writing about a boyhood in the Great Depression, the bond between a young man and his family, digging storm cellars and ducking tornadoes, or the dropping of the atomic bomb as experienced by a paperboy in small-town Kansas, Kloefkorn brings a congenial mixture of seriousness and humor to his subjects.
