About Abundance:

"In the poems that fill Abundance, Robin Chapman combines science and beauty in perfect proportion as she explores the natural world; the scientist in her explaining while the poet and artist renders vivid each landscape she passes through. Abundance is a truly wise and luminous book."
—Jesse Lee Kercheval

"Impeccably crafted, passionate, and attentive, Robin Chapman's new poetry collection distills the subtle beauties of the northern plains, where grow 'small, late blooms on an inland sea.' In 'Moose River,' she gives us a moose as memorable as Elizabeth Bishop's. This excellent book never blanches or blinks at nature's cruelty, yet all the poems in it are lovingly and instructively detailed, and the last four are simply transcendent."
—Kelly Cherry

"Abundance indeed! An abundance of wit and wisdom, an abundance of love and lyricism, an abundance of grace and beauty, in this natural history of happiness and gratitude for the world and all its wonders. Whether evoking marsh or prairie, boundary waters or bog, personal loss or longing, redemption or recovery, Robin Chapman's new collection is indeed `full to overflowing,' 'a bounty,' `a wealth.'"
—Ronald Wallace
