The New Mary Oliver

Some have compared Petiet's work to Thoreau, but to my mind these poems are more reminiscent of Mary Oliver. While the sense of place is similar to walking with Thoreau, the writing has the sensory power of Oliver--I love the way the author brings the smells of sea and sand, and the landscape, to life throughout. Reading this I'm brought right back to the Cape, to weathered gray houses and frogs in the marsh and the constant presence of the sea like its own person. Antonia Malchik, author of A Walking Life: Reclaiming Our Health and Our Freedom One Step at a Time

If you love Cape Cod, you'll love Moon Tide. Horseshoe crabs, ghosts, tree men, black dogs, and daffodils. These characters come alive in Moon Tide, a collection of poems charting the course of a Cape Cod year. Cape Codders may recognize themselves or their friends in these pages, and visitors will find a wonderful souvenir of their Cape Cod vacation. Moon Tide is a book for everyone who loves Cape Cod.
