The poems and their introductions [in Bee Tree and Other Stuff] relate the feelings of a boy brought up by plain people to have love for the simple life, the earth, and all living creatures. Covering a wide range of subjects, from Sarah's yearly litter of kittens to dust, tools, death, and rabbit trails, the poems are all enhanced by the rich vernacular of the poet's birthplace. A delight for readers of all ages and a treasure for teachers trying to inspire young poets to find beauty in ordinary things and events. (p. 82)
