These are poems that reach as slowly and as surely toward the heart of earth as the roots of an old cedar. The language is often clear and numinous and among our most memorable writing. I have seldom been as touched by the sincerity and quiet certainty of a collection of poems as I am by this. Joseph Bruchac The book is one of the most beautiful, unified, and realized that I have read....I can only say that the Tree Psalms are more than a triumph. They are a perfect prayer. May they be read and said and answered. Susan Kinsolving Like the men and women of the great native American cultures that endured for thousands of years, Hugh Ogden has walked through the natural world, listening to it speak, himself like our ancestors leaving no trace but passing on to us these passionate translations of the many dialects of its one grand language. The book is a monument to man's perduring skill, faith and love. F. D. Reeve
