Twenty eight poems, each one exploring love without safety equipment and reporting back on the views from up there.

Foothills is a book of love poetry with a difference: its interest in love is all-terrain. So, yes, there are romantic pieces inside - but you'll also find contemplations of family and friendship. What's more, Foothills does not pretend that love is all puppies and rainbows. Puppies dry-hump your slippers, and gawking at rainbows causes car accidents... Foothills knows this. So come on in for some real talk about love, knowing as you do that this book is ultimately a believer (and probably so are you).

This special edition of Foothills also features two short love stories, as well as Memo, a Thanksgiving poem and essay about resilience that was written in mid-pandemic Paris and inspired by the work of Jack Gilbert.
