"A serious, as well as a seriously playful poet"
New Welsh Review
"Politics and nature, individuality and community, are all fused in McKeand’s grand and capacious vision. It is what makes this book so charismatic and endearing."
"A poet whose voice is rooted in landscape, but who also gets on her bike and breaks free to re-fashion her own tongue. This is a stunning collection."

"This is mythological, musical poetry that not only crosses borders but seems to dismantle them entirely, collapsing time and space, transfiguring and prefiguring the world we live in."
“An allusive, restless sensibility turned outwards to the world; her words have heft, they grasp their way out of poetry into landscape.”
