Note on the Author
Don Johnson taught in the English department at Bridgewater State College from 1971 until 1983 when he left to become chair of the English department at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, TN. After serving as chair for six years he returned to full-time teaching, and from 1992–1994 while on a leave of absence from ETSU, he taught at Iolani School in Honolulu. His poems and criticism have appeared in numerous journals, anthologies, and literary magazines. Other books include Hummers, Knucklers and Slow Curves, a collection of contemporary American baseball poems, and The Sporting Muse, a critical analysis of American poets and poetry about sport. He currently lives on seven acres along the bank of the trout-filled Watauga River in northeast Tennessee in a house that was originally constructed when George Washington was president.
