$22.00

“In 2020, two poets, two friends, stunned and saddened by the events surrounding us, reached across the miles and wrote and shared poems of love, comfort and hope — that is how this book came about. And because we believe in the power of poetry to inspire contemplation and creativity, we included pages in the book for you, the reader, to record your reflections. May you find solace and joy in doing so.”
Georgia Heard and Rebecca Kai Dotlich

A Field Guide to the Heart is unique in that it is both a poetry book and a journal. Written by acclaimed authors and poets Georgia Heard and Rebecca Kai Dotlich, A Field Guide to the Heart features a range of poems organized into three thematic sections — from loss and grief, in the section titled "How Fragile the Heart Is," through healing, in "The Morning of My Choosing," to hope, gratitude, and love, in "A Quivering of Wings." In addition to the poems, this book offers the reader pages for reflection and journaling, a way to connect through the magic of poetry and find comfort in the wisdom and peace that poetry can bring.

  1. Kelli Russell Agodon, Author of Dialogues with Rising Tides (Copper Canyon Press)

    This book contains hope. Built from a friendship and in the spirit of collaboration, A Field Guide to the Heart by Georgia Heard and Rebecca Kai Dotlich is a beautiful offering of poems, as well as space for reflection, and a generosity of caring. Each section focuses on a specific purpose: inspiration/hope, loss/grief, healing/reconnecting, and with every poem, there are additional pages for one’s own words. One of the most beautiful things one can do as a poet, writer, and artist in the world is to look outward, see the pain of the world, and try to make it better—Dotlich and Heard have done that. It is a book to give to the people you love and to yourself. A Field Guide to the Heart is a book to make all of us feel less alone—and what could be a greater gift than hope and connection?
