The Breath You Take From The Lord is a masterful volume that confirms Patrick Friesen's reputation as one of Canada's finest and most versatile poets. In language striking in its simplicity and strength, Friesen's work moves with the controlled intensity of a hawk circling in a vast prairie sky.

These are poems infused with a sense of reverie and innocence, wisdom and clarity, reflections on those things, material and ethereal, that define who we are and where we come from. Drawing on old stories, the stark landscape of the prairie, the rain and mist of Canada's West Coast and the characters of his childhood, Friesen takes the reader on a human quest for the divine.
An elegant new collection from the author of A Broken Bowl - shortlisted for the Governor General's Award for Poetry.
