 About the Author




Elizabeth Keough McDonald grew up in Thompsonville, Connecticut. She has resided in New Mexico since 1994 when she arrived in Gallup, New Mexico to work for the Indian Health Service. She is a disabled military veteran who served as a nurse during the Persian Gulf War. Elizabeth has published widely and received numerous writing awards. Most recently, she was awarded the 2008 San Juan National Forest Artist-In-Residence Program (Aspen Guard Station) award for her poetry.


"Beth McDonald's verse slides the reader effortlessly through other times, other places, other voices. She paints rich worlds in spare words, Whether it he through colorful close ups amid the expanse of a Native American reservation or time travel to scenes of sacrifice by nurse, soldier, or farm worker; it is a joy to join her in honoring the conviction of unsung heroes and beauty of simple lives. Prepare for goose bumps, smiles and tears as McDonald celebrates our common roles in the human condition.
