A wild and dreamy poetic journey through the wilderness in all of us

In her debut poetry collection, Hannah Lee Jones brings readers on a mythic journey across a vast physical and metaphysical landscape. Four cardinal directions point the way through this inner wilderness, through trials and initiations, suffering and discovery, on a restless quest for deeper connection and wholeness. What emerges is a richly textured map of love and loss, a tapestry of hard-won truths both personal and universal. At turns mysterious, dreamlike, intimate, and illuminating, these poems explore what is wild and timeless in the human soul.

"Like stepping into a beautiful dream where women fly over orchards and we encompass the landscape. There are few collections of poems so meditative that I lose myself so deeply . . . WHEN I WAS THE WIND is a remarkable and gorgeous debut collection--you will be better having read these poems."--Kelli Russell Agodon, author of Dialogues with Rising Tides (Copper Canyon Press)
