Tamaracks ~ Canadian Poetry for the 21st Century
Got a hankering for the Great White North? Want to let your inner Canuck out? This is your lucky day! Order your copy here.
Tamaracks is the first survey of modern Canadian poetry (in over 30 years) to be published by an American small press outfit. This mammoth undertaking was hammered out in half a year’s time and was fraught with setbacks and near-fatal difficulties. But through it all, editor and publisher managed to work together, so that Tamaracks could come into being.

Read a review by William Oxley in the Canadian magazine Devour (edited by Richard M. Grove).
“It is about time a contemporary anthology of Canadian poetry was published for the U.S. market, and James Deahl of Sarnia, Ontario, is the perfect choice as editor. Deahl surely knows more about Canadian poetry than anyone else today. Tamaracks is a splendid collection, remarkable in its depth and breadth.”
