The quiet hours : city photographs by Mike Melman( )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Quiet Hours, Mike Melman records a vanishing era of Minnesota's towns and cities through a series of seventy black-and-white photographs taken from 1985 to 2002. Working in the half-light of predawn hours, Melman brings a new perspective to familiar places, one shaped by his training as an architect and his particular affinity for old buildings. Through his artistic and historic images, Melman exposes the speed at which American cities change and presents a gritty yet contemplative portrait of urban Minnesota."--Jacket
The windows of Brimnes : an American in Iceland by Bill Holm( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Poet, musician, wit, and polemicist Bill Holm repairs to Brimnes, his fisherman's cottage on the shore of a fjord in northern Iceland. Looking west from this place of seemingly endless and kaleidoscopic light, and surrounded by little more than the sound of the sea and the birds beyond his windows, he considers America - "my home, my citizenship, my burden." In contrast with the warmth and genuine community of Iceland, its traditions of secularism, pacifism, and love of nature, poetry, and music, Holm sees an America in danger of betraying the ideals of liberty and freedom that animated its founding."--Jacket

Boxelder bug variations : a meditation on an idea in language and music by Bill Holm( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To say that Boxelder Bug Variations is an unusual book is indeed an understatement. It is unusual in its subject, in its range of forms, and most of all, in the incredible energy and whimsy of its imagination. We move from poems to meditations, from a conversation with an entomologist to an essay on clavichords and fugues, from musical scores to fables, haiku, and even a bit of family and local history. In short, if it's hard to pin down exactly what this book is, it's not at all hard to be delighted, charmed, even provoked by it. What Holm ultimately reminds us has to do with overlooking the so called insignificant things, and in so doing overlooking the power of imagination itself. For it is imagination that is the real subject of this book. For those of us who have not forgotten that small and unpretentious things are the most durable and surprising subjects for Art, this book is a rare, wonderful, and most welcome gift. -- From Independent Publisher

The Otter Tail Review, originating from Otter Tail County, the "geographic crossroads" of Minnesota, is an anthology of regional folklore and cultural history. Featuring fiction, poetry and essays from such well-known Minnesota authors as Bill Holm, Winona LaDuke, and Robert Bly--who contributes two original poems--as well as hitherto unpublished story-tellers, ranging from age 11 to 91, the Otter Tail Review conveys a strong sense of place. Its themes run the gamut from early settlement to a community's coming of age, from earth's labor to simple pleasures, and its story are told in unique, genuine voices.--Back cover
