Winner of a 2005 CBC Literary Award, First Mountain is an interconnected suite of poems celebrating Jasper, Alberta, Paulette Dubé's home. Each poem in the suite is like a photograph — crisp, clear and complete in itself yet reverberating with an emotive energy that is part of something more acute and essential.
Dubé's keen sense of the geography, and the healing powers of the natural world — seeking solitude, washing away stress, and celebrating the intimacy that is experienced by living in a pristine environment — shape the emotional backbone of First Mountain. The poetry’s measured cadence, meditative chanting, accessibility and serenity have great appeal.
