Praise for this book

A Wyoming State of Mind weaves a rich emotional tapestry, reflecting the connection of Wyoming's Poet Laureate
to not only our state, but the entire spectrum of human emotion. This work of unique breadth offers richly detailed descriptions of the monumental landscapes of our wonderful state, as well as unvarnished examinations of the fragility of life. Gene's poems tug at the heartstrings, finding beauty in universal, relatable subjects that are alternately tragic and uplifting. --- Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon
