Keeping the Secrets by Don Thompson

Don Thompson's chapbook, Keeping the Secrets, is sort of the third part of a San Joaquin trilogy following Back Roads and Everything Barren Will Be Blessed. The central theme revolves around the pan psychic element in which the author only writes about people, it seems, as a consciousness interacting with trees, rocks, and critters, which also seem to be somehow conscious.
