"H.K. Hummel's poems capture life's essential fragility with a lyrical, yet plainspoken mystery that wends through moments of loss, yearning, and fear as she poignantly explores the forces that tug at one in states of togetherness and isolation."
--Grant Faulkner, Executive Director, NaNoWriMo
"H.K. Hummel's Boytreebird invites the reader in with a precision of detail and a generosity of images, so that, despite an unapologetic attention to environmental degradation, we feel a certain bounty, abundance, and freedom."
--Kate Reavey, Poet
