Praise

“Under the spell of this book, I felt as if I were entering into a truly wild world.”
—Jeff Wasserboehr, The Massachusetts Review

Falling into Place is a deeply rewarding book marked by maturity of thought and lyric richness.”
—Jane Brox, author of Clearing Land: Legacies of the American Farm 
 
“Reid manages to skillfully connect with the art of physically and primally knowing a landscape, as an animal might. . . . This collection is a stunning representation of the multiplicity of place, and our station within it.”
—July Westhale, Lambda Literary
