High Marsh Road
High Marsh Road, a finalist for the 1980 Governor General's Award and a beautiful example of bookmaking, is now back in print. High Marsh Road is a signficant step in the century-long artistic tradition of the Tantramar region, begun by Charles G.D. Roberts and continued by Alex Colville, John Thompson, and Lochhead himself.
The book consists of 122 poems marking daily walks over the windblown marsh. Along with minute particulars of the marsh itself, its weather, and its birds and animals, High Marsh Road is an intimate account of a man's exploration of nature and the self.
