Where the River Goes, Allan Burns's anthology of English-language nature haiku has been published by Snapshot Press, and features 40 poets, including me. Burns's introduction traces the treatment of 'nature' within Western thought and literature alongside the development of classical Japanese haiku until the two intersected; and examines the development of nature haiku in English over the last 50 or so years. It's a hefty and beautiful tome, a manifesto and rallying cry, that will bear repeated reading.
