Once Removed continues poet-naturalist Elizabeth Bradfield’s exploration of how we navigate (and sometimes contaminate) our ecological and emotional environments. Set on the waters and shores of Cape Cod, with sojourns to Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and elsewhere, Bradfield’s unflinching poems delve into our complex impulse to connect to nature and the ways in which the landscapes we inhabit stay with us long after we leave them. Once Removed is a moving chronicle of natural encounters, a masterful confluence of art and life.
“A deft naturalist, with a keen eye for details. . .of nature, human and non-human.”
—Jon Christensen, San Francisco Chronicle
