Wildbranch Part V: For the Children/For the Future

"The title of the final section of the anthology is taken from our concluding essay, Scott Russell Sanders’s “For the Children,” which is in turn based on a line in a poem by Gary Snyder. Each writer in this section addresses a different vision of the future, from Aleria Jensen speaking directly to her unborn child in “Peepers,” to April Newlin’s essay, “Hatch,” where we are allowed to join the author as she patiently watches over a nest of endangered sea turtle eggs." (p. xvii)
