A cross between Robert Services tall tales, Grey Owls attention to nature, Ian Tysons cowboy poetry, and Fred Eaglesmiths acerbic wit, Charlies poetry is as authentic as the land he farms northeast of Massey Ontario.Charlie Smith Reads follows Charlies two successful YSP collections of poetry: The Beast that God has Kissed: Songs from the Birch Lake Road (Dec. 2000), and Through Three Long Miles of Night: More Songs from the Birch Lake Road (May 2003), as well as his YSP collection of 17 stories Tag Alder Tales (May 2005). The resonant lyric/narrative voice so evident in the earlier volumes manifests itself richly in this audio CD of his best poems.
