Summary Excerpt Comments

River of Stars is an award-winning collection of poems and illustrations from Maryland State Arts Council poet, Vonnie Winslow Crist. Also included, are a series of photographs by Melissa A. Crist.

"What a terrific read! Magic and myth rustle sonorously in the pages of Vonnie Winslow Crist's latest collection, River of Stars. Here is a book rich in mysteries which the poet has made tangible. Exciting stuff!" - Clarinda Harriss, English Department Chair, Towson University, and Director of New Poets Series & BrickHouse Press.

"Like rivers surging toward a larger sea, details leap toward metaphors of understanding about the human condition. Crist's poems are marked by her desire to see the macrocosm in the microcosm. Through fable and myth and legend she explores te larger meanings of the human condition, the hungers of the human heart." - Michael S. Glaser, Professor of English, St. Mary's College, and Director of St. Mary's Poetry Festival.

"These poems by Vonnie Winslow Crist are populated by dark birds & wolves that haunt a nature transformed by myth & magic. Here are the rhythms of moon & tide orchestrated into a concert of language steeped in the love of mystery... There is throughout a sense of reverence for & celebration of moment to moment life as a gift & sacrament..." - Dr. Gary Blankenburg, English teacher, Catonsville High, and Director Eclectic Press.
