"The landscape of the Calumet, an area that sits astride the IndianaIllinois state line at the southern end ofLake Michigan was shaped by the glaciers that withdrew toward the end of t he last ice ageabout 45,000 years ago. In the years since, many natural forces, including wind, running water, and the waves of Lake Michigan, have continued to shape the land. The lake's modern and ancient shorelines have served as Indian trails, stagecoach routes, highways, and sites that have evolved into many of the cities, towns, and villages of the Calumet area. People have also left their mark on the landscape: Indians built mounds; farmers filled in wetlands; governments commissioned ditches and canals to drain marshes and change the direction of rivers; sand was hauled from where it was plentiful to where it was needed for urban and industrial growth. These thousands of years of weather and movements of peoples have given the Calumet region its distinct climate and appeal." (BookFinder). Contents : Prologue : The Calumet area.

217 SMITH, Douglas Burnett Helsinki Drift. First Edition.
Beach Holme Publishing, Vancouver, 2002, ISBN:0888784295 
SMITH, Douglas Burnett. Helsinki Drift. Vancouver : Porcepic Books, an imprint of Beach Holme Publishing, (2002). First Edition. Pp. (10),3-81,(7). 8vo, blue art-illustrated cardcovers. Douglas Burnet Smith (b. 1949 in Winnipeg, Manitoba), long-time teacher at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. "Actress Mae West once said 'I've been things and seen palces.' Poet Douglas Burnet Smith might well be able to lay claim to the same boast. In his latest collection of verse he takes the reader on a kaleidoscopic journey through Amsterdam's antique streets and canals, Tuscany's sun-soaked landscapes, Paris's Gallic gabble of monuments and madcaps, and the title poem's Finnish auditory and aural delights. In one poem we place Scrabble with Dadaist Tristan Tazara. In another work, 'Sophia,' we encouner'the mangy wisdom of wild dogs on ever street,/ / skulking, pawing rabid p iles of garbage / choking gutters, begging at the front doors of restaurants / like reeducated ideologues.' In still another verse the poet's persona contemplates Italian artist Giotto in Colorado, citing 'the copper hogbacks' in which 'he sees layered / trecento shale-engraved depictions of Egypt and the Exodus.' And everywhere his Muse takes him, Smith injects his stopovers with fresh perspectives, lending credence to seventeenth-century English essayist Sir Thomas Browne's dictum: 'Ready to be anything in the ecstasyof being ever.'" - from rear. Very good. NOTE: Due to its small size, ship ping costs may be a bit cheaper than quoted. 12.00
