Chile, en particular o “gritar en chileno como [lo hacen] los piñones, el mote, los pájaros y las empanadas, tal vez como murmuraban el huemul y la razón”, de Lilianet Brintrup Hertling, es un libro que sorprenderá al lector. Sus referencias geográficas, históricas, culturales, culinarias y biográficas comienzan con la manducación: se mastican, se tragan, se degluten formando un bolo alimenticio inmediatamente descriptivo, valorativo y etopéyico.

For sixteen years, I lived and worked at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park located on the coast at the northernmost edge of California. One of my favorite activities was leading children on nature hikes into the ancient forest. Encouraging children to discover the redwoods and watching their eyes sparkle as they listened to “Lift Up the Sky!” was magic for me and I believe it was for them, too.
Durante dieciséis años, viví y trabajé en el Parque Estatal Prairie Creek Redwoods, ubicado en la costa en el extremo norte de California. Una de mis actividades favoritas era guiar a los niños en caminatas por la naturaleza en el bosque antiguo. Animar a los niños a descubrir las secuoyas y ver sus ojos brillar mientras escuchaban “¡Levanten el Cielo!” fue mágico para mí y creo que también lo fue para ellos.

Song of Six Rivers relates one man’s life-changing experiences throughout the Humboldt Bay region of northern California, depicting the area’s geography and history along the way, through both poetry and archival photography. When the muse of this epic poem, Guy Kuttner, died unexpectedly, Zev Levinson heard his voice imploring him to sing of the land they both love. As a roving teacher, Zev had come to know the Six Rivers terrain and communities intimately. He put his pen to the task of meeting Guy’s daunting challenge, confronting mortality and loss as he ventured to understand our connection to earth. At its heart, this endeavor strives to weave poetry into the everyday lives of those who dwell behind the redwood curtain.
