Now Available for Purchase at Amazon.com

2016 National Indie Excellence Awards Finalist, poetry category.

Poet and journalist Nan Lundeen gives voice to rural Iowa of the 1950s "where cornfields sang in summer/and winter howled at our throats."

 
"In these poems, Nan harvests the stories of the land and the people that she came from and both will forever live in her well-worked lines." - Glenis Redmond, Teaching Artist & Poet.
 
""Black Dirt Days celebrates farm and family, childhood and church, and ultimately even 'good death.' In these honest, forthright poems full of Iowa light, Nan Lundeen offers praise for the place 'where [her] soul planted itself/and refused to move/although [her] body did.'" – Gil Allen, Bennette E. Geer Professor of Literature, Furman University, Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Prize in Poetry.
 

"Nan's works are warm, engaging, understandable, and down-to-earth, full of concrete images and enticing language." – Jenny Munro, Freelance Writer.
