Praise for Tiktaalik, Adieu
Science looms large and lives well in Tiktaalik, Adieu. Pedersen’s lovely poems speak for, and to, our ever evolving, rapidly changing natural world, wherein the human animal seeks peace, or simply survival, from “resting place to resting place.” ~ Nance Van Winckel, author of Pacific Walkers
Lynn Pedersen gathers the world into her poems: its classical elements, its intricate patterns, its infinite mysteries. She makes gorgeous lyrics of stars and bone. ~Tania Rochelle, author ofKaraoke Funeral and The World’s Last Bone
