In his latest collection, Leland Kinsey, the "unofficial poet laureate of the Northeast Kingdom" (Vermont Sunday Magazine), brings the same careful attention and gift for observation to the people and landscape of Tanzania that he regularly has applied to the contours of northern Vermont. In poems that document his encounters with a strange-yet-familiar landscape, Kinsey distills his experience and that of his first cousin, who has lived and worked there for twenty years, into straightforward yet highly polished language that suits the austerity of rural Africa as well as it does that of the Northeast Kingdom.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Riveting reading that, like a good trip, indelibly impresses."--Booklist
"Like his literary predecessors Henry David Thoreau and Robert Frost, Leland Kinsey is an accomplished naturalist. He revels in marvelous natural images . . ."--World Ark
"In the Rain Shadow brings together a number of [Kinsey's] interests: the literary ones, of course, but also farming, the physical world, nature, community. And family."--The Burlington Free Press
"In the Rain Shadow is a stunning achievement. Mr. Kinsey . . . gives his readers a gift. Through his journeys and experiences he brings us an Africa we could otherwise only know by going there."--The Chronicle (Barton, VT)
