Following the trail he set out on in From he Arapaho Songbook, the poems in Andrew Schelling’s A Possible Bag take us further into the recesses of the Southern Rocky Mountain bio-region, tracking the remnants of the Arapaho language that was once the native tongue of that terrain.

A translator, poet, ecologist, and explorer, Andrew Schelling was raised in New England, but relocated to Northern California in the early 1970s, where he studied Sanskrit and Asian literature at the University of California, Berkeley. He has explored and traveled extensively throughout North America, Europe, and South Asia, and currently lives near the Southern Rocky mountains, in Boulder, Colorado, where he teaches poetry, Sanskrit, and nature writing at Naropa University.
