Item description for Honoring the Stones by James O'Hern...

Honoring the Stones is an exciting debut book by a man in mid-life seeking a primal vision of unity through the metaphor of stone. These poems tell the story of a boy's deep engagement with the world of nature, his desire to honor the Earth, pay homage to his mother, and to -fulfill her wish that he learn who he is and where he comes from. Rich in his use of mythology, his Irish heritage and his memories of the Texas border country, the author calls on the use of Spanish, Nahuatl, and Gaelic to expand his ethnic boundaries as he seeks connection with the ancient past.

Though the poems can stand alone as well-wrought lyrics, together they narrate a life-long spiritual quest for peace and understanding.

James O'Hern grew up on a ranch in Laredo, Texas, where, as a boy, he was mentored and profoundly influenced by a Mexican Mestizo who introduced him to the world of myth and Indian lore. He attended Kemper Military School in Missouri, SMU in Texas and the NYU Graduate School of business. For more than 30 years, he has been an investment banker. For the last 10 years, he has been writing poetry and traveling to sacred sites. His poems have appeared in Spillway, On the Bus and Rattle.

Reviews - What do customers think about Honoring the Stones?

Honoring the Muse  May 14, 2004
Jim O'Hern's book had me in a trance, one I didn't want to emerge from. His work is so intensely personal, yet universal, that I ached from my own relationship to his thoughts. There is such passion in his words, and such a deep commitment to the themes, that I believe he is a new voice to be contended with--move over, Robert Bly.
