Since founding Ice Cube Press in North Liberty, Iowa, Steve Semken has been busy publishing other authors.  Still, he finds time to write.  His seventh book,is titled “Soul External: Rediscovering the Great Blue Heron.”   Orion Magazine’s late environmental book reviewer  Peter Sauer, called this hard-to define book “mythological natural history.”  We’re including it in our memoir section because this beautiful volume is that too, as well as poetry, inspiration, spirituality, and even graphic design.
