Singing Bone strides across the boundaries of conventional cosmology to bring us a truly original vision of our world. Bitney takes us back through the genealogy of the imagination, revisiting and revising the ancient fireside legends of the human race in poems that explore the nature of creation–the space between sleep and dreaming, the music and geometry of the physical world, the spirit that never ceass to move us to sing as we tumble through time.
