This is the first book of poetry by John Coster. In a review of his work as a songwriter, The Boston Globe called Coster an artist "of unusual eloquence and sensitivity who could become a national figure." These poems are often narrative like folk songs but they are always analytical. Coster describes moments of personal revelation in the broader context of historical change. He takes on the traditional challenge of expressing matters of mortal consequence in language that is musical, but he is often ironic and never bound to rigid forms. Coster's work affirms the obligation of poets to entertain an audience and honor poetry's origins in the ancient art of storytelling.

This book chronicles a series of strange events that happen in western Massachusetts after a woman hiking in a forest sees a manlike creature assumed to be a white Sasquatch. Begun as a journal entry recording just the sighting, the story evolves as the woman and the author experience seeming communications from the being. Odd coincidences and compelling physical evidence accumulate over the course of a year, expanding the story and confirming the existence of a real physical being, but also demonstrating that there are unseen forces at play in the natural world. Though the narrative momentum of the story builds in ways suggestive of a novel, this is not a work of fiction. One might call it interpretive nonfiction because the story, like the white Sasquatch itself, seems to connect the inner and outer worlds of the main characters. It also raises questions about our place in the natural world and the limits of our scientific understanding. This is not just a book for Bigfoot enthusiasts. It is a story for anyone interested in the possibility that different realities can converge in ways not fully understood either by psychologists or followers of the natural sciences.
