In Poetry and Prose

by Mack Samples

Reflections is a good description of this book. The poems and essays reflect what I saw and experienced during my years of living, traveling and most of all, enjoying in West Virginia. Some the poems were written as early as the 1960s, most of them were composed during the 1970s, 80s, and 90s as I traversed the state for one reason or another. Many of them were written on location. If I might paraphrase Thoreau who wrote: “Where I lived and what I lived for,” I might call this one, “ How I lived and what I enjoyed in rural West Virginia.” – Mack Samples
