Bank of the Cottonwoods Bank of the Cottonwoods deals with the first eighteen years of my life and the people around me. The book is part one of a two-book autobiography. My version of my life and the people around me is one of many. The paragraphs are long, the theme varies, but I am not a professional author, just a country boy. The greatest lesson that I learned in those first eighteen years have stuck with me. First of all, you can find good in most people, if you dig deep enough. People also can change; you do not have to be a product of your environment. Perhaps the greatest of all the lessons that is portrayed in Bank of the Cottonwoods is that people, in general, are programmed from childhood. Some are programmed to work, steal, be prejudiced, hate, or even think they are better than others. Also that programming can be passed on down, several generations. Perhaps somebody's mom or daddy was wrong and some were right. You can call my book fact or fiction, but to me they are as real as the 9-11 attack on the World Trade Center, because I lived it.

"David Ferry must have had something up his sleeve when he called his book "Strangers," because his is a poetry of intimacy and familiarity. More than that, Mr. Ferry's short, sparse lyrics are as perfectly and simply composed as Japanese haiku—a rare accomplishment in poetry written in English."—Andy Brumer, New York Times Book Review "Strangers is a remarkably good book for a reader sufficiently attentive to hear its quiet power, to let it work in its distinctive way."—Boston Globe "The poems of David Ferry's Strangers are in fact one book, and it is a splendid one. There is the same austere and poignant voice throughout, asking the unanswerable things, speaking of all that is withheld from us, confronting the unknownness that dwells even in the familiar and dear. Painful and touching, the book offers a distinctive vision which is at the same time inescapably true."—Richard Wilbur
