We Make a Tiny Herd: Poems to Honor the Burro Lady of Far West Texas by Lucy Griffith.
"Lucy Griffith's work grows out of a passionate love for our southern borderlands, and for their harsh and harshly beautiful landscape. These poems are a poignant lovesong to west Texas, to to the power of 'a woman alone' - be it the nearly mythic figure of 'The Burro Lady' or Griffith herself, calling across the desert to 'La Reina.'" - Patrick Phillips
