Blood and Bone, River and Stone

By Christopher Kuhl

Through a mixture of genres and styles, Blood and Bone, River and Stone: Memoirs of Lewis County tells a story of a rural land and its people. Not every event is factual, but they are, in some way, the kinds of things that can–and do–happen in all rural areas.

Author Christopher Kuhl creates a tale of the land and people of rugged Lewis County. He dramatizes accounts of select families and their interaction with the land, each other, and the place they call home. In a country founded by farmers–and still rural in many of its values–Kuhl’s innovative poetic narrative resonates across all classes. Blood and Bone, River and Stone’s truth is revealed in the tales of who these people are and where they came from.

Kuhl has perfectly blended history, family stories, and mythology about this unforgiving land and its impact upon the generations who lived there. For him, it rings true that the river and stone are ineradicably in his blood and bones.

Christopher Kuhl, a poet with roots in northern New York, taught writing for a number of years in a variety of venues. His work has been published widely.

  1. This collection of poems stuns the reader with metaphors and melodies which go straight to the heart. Beautiful and powerful, straightforward and loving are Kuhl’s renderings of homeland. She is a new star in poetry.

  2. It has beauty and strength, and with many poems, brilliance. He writes of difficult issues with an aesthetic that in itself is healing. And gives comfort and hope.
