Brush Country is a collection of poems that vary greatly in style, tone, length, and content. Their unity is in the setting. Each poem is about some person, place or event that has transpired or been inspired by the Brush Country of Central Texas. Each poem has its own ambiance and its own rhythm. Whether rugged and rough hewn as the tangled underbrush that grows in stubborn profusion beneath the stately oaks and scrubby mesquites or as finely wrought as the fragile flowers that bloom in shady glades and hidden places, these poems reflect the unique environment, the ambiguous nature and the paradoxical people who inhabit this distinctive and unusual little corner of the world.
