"Paumanok is a beautiful book, whether judged by its visual appearance or its words—the superb quality of the images, the sound of the poems. This anthology, which celebrates the cycle of the seasons, documents an aspect of Long Island far removed from the intensity of expressways, frenetic pace of contemporary life. Paumanok! The name evokes a magic. We must each find our own Paumanok, discover our secret place. Entering the pages of this book, we are transported there." —Richard Bronson, author of SEARCH FOR OZ "What is unusual about ths charming anthology is how well the poems and poets—some well-known, others not—all fit together, as if the Long Island they celebrate so beautifully has a sensibility they all share, even though some of the poets write about everyday life and some about sea and sky. The more than 300 photographs that accompany the poems make a perfect embellishment. The book demonstraes how Long Island is, and has been, a nest of singing birds." —Harvey Shapiro, author of THE SIGHTS ALONG THE HARBOR: NEW AND COLLECTED POEMS
