Helen Losse Comments on "For One Who Knows How to Own Land"

Kind words from Helen Losse about my new book, "For One Who Knows How to Own Land" (Future Cycle Press):

As Tim Peeler's blurb says, this is Owens' best book yet (and yes, I've read them all). Beautiful and earthy, Owens’ poems are filled with bird sounds and various kinds of trees, as well as cows and fields, but they are actually "red dirt" covered memorials to the people he remembers from his childhood in rural South Carolina, especially his grandfather to whom the book is dedicated. Owens, who said he admired "poets of place," has become one.
