The first forty pages of the book is a nakedly autobiographical look at the first ten years of the author’s life on the water on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
Written in gulps and fleeting drizzles or shadows, each section is written in its own style from high diction to short thrusts of tough- guy prose.
Other poems in the book deal with a soulless lover, a history of witchcraft in America, a trapped Kentucky spelunker, and a series of poems about Appalachian people of the 1960’s in dialect.
Silver Beach Road is one of the author’s most moving and beautiful works.
