Slack Tide takes the reader on a journey with a man who questions the phases of his life in rich,
detailed descriptions. These poems reveal both the joys and travails of a Californian over nearly
three-quarters of a century. From baseball cards and cul-de-sacs in 1950’s Altadena to
environmental issues in 1970’s Humboldt County, from love at first sight in a UCLA dorm room
to a wistful farewell to his beloved wife, Rick has constructed this collection of poems to reveal
many facets of his remarkable life as husband, father, son, naturalist, and writer.
