Cross Point Road by Rodney Nelson

06 Jun

(A Middle Island Press book release)

Nelson - Cross Point Road Cover JPEGNorth Dakota poet Rodney Nelson’s Cross Point Road (ISBN 978-0-6922-6780-6) is his fifth Middle Island Press title, his second full-length poetry book that we’ve published in the past several months.

It’s a beautiful collection on a variety of subjects. His work in general possesses a quiet sort of panache–sophistication without pretense–and with much to offer readers and poets who genuinely seek to improve their own craft. Nelson has decades of professional literary experience, and he pens his own personal experience in Cross Point Road.

From the Middle Island Press website:

Poet Rodney Nelson’s home region, the Red River prairie, has been called a valley but is in fact a seabed with hidden beaches rimming it. The native and restored grassland of Felton Prairie is up on one of these. Nelson walks there often and has borrowed its name for this collection of poems.

Copies can be purchased through the Middle Island Press website, and elsewhere online.
