8 editions published in 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With In Broken Country, David Wagoner augments his reputation as ... a strong voice of the Midwest and Far West. A deep love and respect for nature pervade these poems. Wagoner writes movingly of the individual's resolve to master his own life. ... As Arthur Oberg has observed in Poetry magazine, "Increasingly, he comes to share, with poets like Frost and Roethke, a respect for the otherness of things which can never be fully known, yet which can be approached if we possess enough reverence and awe." ... --Atlantic Monthly Press Donated by Prabu Vasan

The road to many a wonder; a novel by David Wagoner( Book )

10 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Road to Many a Wonder has been called "one of the funniest books in English," and "an irresistible comic romance," but these accolades don't do the book justice. The story of 20-year-old Ike Bender's trek to the Denver area during the 1859 Pike's Peak Gold Rush is more a story of the triumph of optimism and faith over overwhelming odds. It's only incidental that the author uses witty, appealingly humorous Western-style backwoods-sounding dialogue and verbal sketches to paint an accurate picture of Ike, his 16-year-old bride Millie, their adopted mule Mr. Blue and the characters they meet up with on their journey. Through 500 miles of wild and perilous country, past fierce Indians and belligerent villains, Ike and Millie never stray from their upbeat, joyous goal: to be together, happy and prosperous-with gold or without it. With every step, the two young travelers face down the weary and spent faithless who are struggling to retreat. Ike sums it up best as he describes his confrontation with an unfortunate fellow on the trail: "I didn't have no cause to fight and no time to spare for it, so I just left him behind, wasting his breath and not enjoying hisself or his surroundings, probably not even seeing the way the sun come wavering off and on across the sand and getting hisself all worked up worrying about somebody else getting the best of him. I vowed then and there I wasn't going to do nothing like that, but do my work and take my turn and prepare for the worst and hope for the best and manage with what come along." --Suzanne Higginbotham at Amazon.com

A map of the night : poems by David Wagoner( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Wagoners wide-ranging poetry buzzes and swells with life. Woods, streams, and fields fascinate him--he happily admits his devotion to Thoreau--but so do people and their habits, dear friends and family, the odd poet, and strangers who become even stranger when looked at closely. In this new collection, Wagoner catches the mixed feelings of a long drive, the sensations of walking against a current, the difficulty of writing poetry with noisily amorous neighbors, and many more uniquely familiar experiences
