Seed Catalogue’s first publication in 1977 changed the shape of prairie writing when Robert Kroetsch claimed a personal mythology and language grounded in the prairies. A seminal work of prairie literature, it began a new era in Canadian writing and new excitement for the possibilities of poetry in the West.

“No other book of recent poetry, and few in fiction, sets out with more wit and precision the connections of place and poetry.”
