The first significant book of poems by an American to spring from the war in Vietnam. Michael Casey is a natural and frugal storyteller, his honesty shines through, and he listens. How beautifully he listens, and what a fine ear for speech patterns. Michael Casey is a workingman's poet, a grunt poet that humped the boonies and made it back to let us know his visons of the worlds he has met with and what may be important for the future. Right on, Michael Casey, right on.
