News at Eleven (Back Page): I bought my copy of "Home-Altar" second-hand

(100 copies were originally published in 1978) and it arrived signed and with pressed flowers in it--someone before me had treasured this book--not to mention the unruly serpents in this excerpt from "Rattlesnake Bluff":

That night the lack of rain brought them
Down off the bluff,
All we saw was the grass
Fluttering where we'd burned. . .,

from The New York Times: Small Books With Big Souls
