The Salted Woman is an exquisite, fertile collection of poetry from the pen of African-Canadian writer Pauline Peters. Opening this book will feel like you are being offered a precious gift, and as you turn the pages you will fall deeper into her ancient and sensuous landscapes, and begin to see the world through her artful lens. Here we find praise songs to nature, dances with the mystery of time and the interconnectedness of ecosystems and stars, and gentle and holy reverence of land-as-woman. Ancestors walk through the pages with us also and tell us witty and unexpected truths.

This first edition is litho-printed in beautiful quality on 100% recycled paper (140gsm internal, 250gsm Shira Alga Carta seaweed paper cover) in England, by Calverts workers' co-op.

The book is A6 size (4.2″x5.9″) and has 56 inner pages. It is perfectbound.
