This work includes lines from poems by Maxine Kumin in her collection "Nurture," images of animals in danger of extinction, and words from the endangered Wintu language for all of us who are going under. It's the book cover background for The Tales of Sam Everlasting, by Benton Jessee.

that a pillowcase makes a fine
substitute pouch for an orphaned kangaroo. . .
