ABOUT THIS BOOK
Mar Ka lives in and writes from the foothills of Alaska’s Chugach Mountains. Be-Hooved, her new poetry collection, creates a layered spiritual memoir of her decades in the northern wilderness. The poems inhabit her surroundings—structured along the seasons and the migration patterns of the Porcupine Caribou Herd—and are wrought with a fine and luminous language.

Entrancing, profound, and startling, this book is a testament to hope before change, persistence before confusion, and empathy before difference: all the world’s light and all the world’s dark / can fit into an eye into a heart.
