Robert Morgan's newest collection of poetry is a treasury of snapshots in time, celebrating the past and present in Morgan's native region of western North Carolina and the Green River Valley. Topsoil Road features two parts: the first flowing smoothly from Cherokee history to the arrival of the poet's Welsh forebears; the second eloquently depicting the intricacies of nature and how they are subjected to the world of man. Whether describing the Cherokee chief Attakullakulla in London or the way a zebra spider glides across the sky, Morgan casts each poem with elegance and a rare sense of wonder, turning minute observations of the commonplace into portraits of delicate and significant beauty.
