By Author Mark Scheel & Illustrator Joseph Maino
Mark Scheel’s Star Chaser is “a creative burst exploring the relationships among ancient legend, the life cycle, the autobiographical and modern day angst.”
Star Chaser is divided into three sections: “Yesterday,” “Today” and “Tomorrow.” This division signifies the reality all of us must confront living our lives.
Throughout the collection many of the poems are given an added richness and extended implication via the accomplished photography of Joseph Maino.
Such is the scope and beauty of Star Chaser. While Mr. Scheel may still deem himself poetically a “star chaser,” it is clear that, like the Northern Lights themselves, he has illuminated our horizon with a book of poetry that transcends the emotionally empty and hollow halls of academe and reaches out, longingly and lovingly, to grasp and finally catch those faraway stars. -Glen Enloe, author of When Cowboys Rode Away.
