Once Removed
Persea Books (2015)

Impelled by conflicting desires, Once Removed continues poet-naturalist Elizabeth Bradfield’s exploration of our ecological and emotional environments.

Set on the waters and shores of Cape Cod, with sojourns to Alaska, the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere, Bradfield’s unflinching, perceptive poems delve into our complex impulses to connect to nature and each other.
