Madison, WI: Ghost Pony Press, 2019. First Edition. Softcover. Signed by Thomas Rain Crowe. "Thomas Rain Crowe is a poet who believes in journeys. His poems stem from a sensibility that is far-reaching and worldwide in its intensity while at the same time able to absorb the particularity of everyday life. [Driving the Green Road] is the result of that collaboration between poet and place which was mainly carried out during the summers of 1993 and 1995. His lyric voice documents visions of humanity that are uplifting and present a worldview that is subversively humane."
