Kneeling Orion – SAVE 40%!

Here are stories in poetry of friendships, of rural Maine, of seasons, and of lives slowly, inexorably coming to an end. And beneath the stories are life lessons, the harsh climate of New England, and the necessities of living a life alone but without loneliness. You’ll feel a sense of connection – with the past, with the earth, with her friends, and with the human condition superbly defined.

Kate Barnes was Maine’s first official Poet Laureate. She was also a gifted artist, a serious scholar of literature, and a maker of beautiful handmade books.

Mary Azarian grew up on a small farm in Virginia, where she had horses, rabbits and chickens. After graduating from Smith College, where she studied printmaking with Leonard Baskin, she married and moved to a farm in northern Vermont. There she taught for four years in one of the last one-room schoolhouses in the state. She has been a full-time printmaker since 1969. Her illustrated books include Kneeling Orion by the poet, Kate Barnes, The Tale of John Barleycorn, and A Farmer's Alphabet.
