A mature poet, Larry Thomas has an extraordinary gift which has evolved through decades at his craft. Thomas explores the natural world of Texas??"its animal icons like the Hereford or hawk or rattlesnake, the larger-than-life geography, which is the stuff out of which legends are made.
Thomas captures the spirit of place within larger truths that “travel well,” as editor Billy Bob Hill explains in his introduction. Hill also takes careful note of the poet??s deft alliteration and just-right compression of language as he urges readers to enjoy Thomas?? poems for their Texas elements but also the worldly art therein.
