"John Terpstra's meditations have the soundness and snug fit of consummate carpentry, measure in language and in thought... This is religious writing from the ground up, negotiating the difficult moral terrain between wildness and 'development' with an imaginative grasp reminiscent of Dennis Lee's Civil Elegies. This is an important book, with the toughness of maple, the compassion of cedar." – Don Mckay
