The Great Divide
The Great Divide is North America’s primary mountainous watershed. Bisecting the continent along a ridge line from the Rockies to the Andes and extending from the Bering Strait to the Strait of Magellan. From this continental line, the rivers flow either to the east or the west, meandering through tributaries and communities, carrying water to the oceans. And while it is a definitive partition, it travels across borders and through cultures.
I grew up on The Great Divide in Montana. This collection is a meditation on climate change. On the peaks and valleys carved and formed by water and geological events as well the idea of division itself.
