The Imagined Life of The Pioneer Wife is a life fully imagined. Vorreyer’s poems are  sometimes brutal in their honest portrayals and always poignant in their beautiful  rendering of landscape and language.  From silken threads to shotguns to milkweed  in bloom, the Pioneer Wife creates a time and space we can inhabit with her as we  move from one tightly crafted poem to the next.
