"...a great book to dip in to, a hymn to a place and a manifesto for poetry that is regional, democratic and plain... There are plenty of famous names here... others deserve to be better known... but the book's real delights are poems by younger poets." - Morning Star
"This is what good anthologies should be: surprising, deft and graceful. And a great cover!" - Staple
