    Far Company
    Poetry by Cindy Hunter Morgan
    Wayne State University Press, May 2022
    ISBN: 9780814349526
    Paperback, 72pp; $16.99

    In Far Company reveals Cindy Hunter Morgan thinking about the many ways we carry the natural world inside of us as a kind of embedded cartography. Many of these poems commune not only with lost ancestors but also past poets. She offers conversations with Emily Dickinson, James Wright, Walt Whitman, and W. S. Merwin. These poets, who are part of Hunter Morgan’s poetic lineage, are beloved figures in the far company she keeps, but the poems she writes are distinctly hers.
