Southeastern Booksellers Award 1999Janisse Ray has published three more books since then. Wild Card Quilt: Taking a Chance on Home (2003) is about coming home: "Seventeen years after she'd left home 'for good,' Janisse Ray pointed her truck away from Montana and back to the small southern town where she was born." Pinhook: Finding Wholeness in a Fragmented Land (2005) explores southern Georgia's Pinhook Swamp, a vital watershed that links the Okefenokee and the Osceola National Forest. A House of Branches (2010) is a book of "poems informed by the author's long-standing interest in the wilderness and nature."

I have put Wild Card Quilt on hold at my library. Have you read any of Janisse Ray's books?
