Description

In Lightning Over Wyoming, Kat Cameron's second poetry collection, the poet takes us into her world and beyond with truthful yet empathetic observations of what it means to be young, to be old, to be lost and to be found. As in her first book Strange Labyrinth, she weaves historical figures into a modern sensibility, showing us both the beautiful and ugly threads between then in now. In the collection's title section, Cameron takes us to the Wild West and Buffalo Bill Cody's life after a visit to the town in Wyoming he built. In "Alberta Advantage," another of three sections in thie collection, Cameron contrasts Alberta's stunning mountains and lakes with the crime and sorrow plaguing its oil-rich cities.
