I decided to read this collection after seeing a remarkable interview between the poet and a sensitive interviewer on a small US tv station.
The interview: http://www.hcam.tv/poetic-lines-afaa-michael-weaver-0 See the beauty and kindness of in interviewer and the calm emanating from the poet.
Link to a poem about the foal he discusses at the start of the interview: The Appaloosa
