Dr. Hiram Larew wrote a review for Fire and Rain:
Ecopoetry of California http://www.scarlettanager.com/fire-and-rain.html
Hunger has many neighbors -- environmental degradation lives just next door. Without a healthy environment, sustainable food production is only a dream. And so, when nearly 150 poets voice the vistas of that eco-treasure called California, the anti-hunger community tunes in.
“Fire and Rain: Ecopoetry of California,” an award-winning anthology edited by Lucille Lang Day and Ruth Nolan (2018; Scarlet Tanager Books, Oakland, CA; 430 pp) is vast with word-painted landscapes that are at once iconic, dazzling, vanishing, daring and, most of all, haunting. The many perspectives alongside the rich array of stream-wandering wonders in this collection of poems are worth our appreciation and concern. And, while hunger isn’t mentioned, nearly every page contains a near-famished love of the hills, peaks, blooms, blaze and fur of the place. Yes! to these poems that feed us.
