Bloodroot showcases poetry from the collected works of Jasper, Indiana, native Norbert Krapf. Spanning 35 years, these poems focus on Krapf's experiences living in southern Indiana and the intersection of his life with his German ancestry. Forty of the poems are published here for the first time.

Photographs by David Pierini, inspired by Krapf's work with many taken in and around Dubois County, grace this evocative portrait of a poet and place.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Anyone who doubts that poetry can reveal the history of a person or a place should read the collected poems of Indiana poet laureate Norbert Krapf. March 2009

* Indiana Magazine of History *

Krapf's poems are sensually rich and wildly accessible. . . . This is a collection to be savored.February 1, 2009

-- Michael Zimmerman * Indianapolis Star *

A new poetic voice has risen out of the hills and woods of southern Indiana, Hoosier poet laureate Norbert Krapf. . . . What one has been endowed with is a major part of what one has to endow the future. Out of this endowment Krapf has given us a great legacy.

-- John D. Groppe * Valparaiso Poetry Review *

Krapf's poems are a conglomeration of wildlife, people, plants, nature, and land, with vivid imagery allowing the reader to practically smell the flowers, walk with bare feet through the grass, and feel the wind on their cheek.March/April 2009

* Northern Indiana Lakes Magazine *
