The Forest She Traveled is a collection of poems, a journey through the bodys grammar as it seeks to bring forward what has passed. The book is a vast field note of conversations with the fallen, the ancestral child, the ransacked, the witness. It is an account of a young woman and the precariousness she finds at the intersection of identity and migration. It is an archivists project tinged with antediluvian fantasy and hard living. In the authors blue jeep, turned boat, turned spaceship, she arrives at a pit stop to leave a memento.
