2000 · Mt. Aukum, California
Octavo (8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches; 215 x 140 mm), 37,  pages in stapled wrappers (soft cover).
SIGNED by Ann Menebroker on the title page. A collection of 26 poems by the Sacramento poet (1936-2016). It contains a short introduction by the author, in which she says, "I write from experiences that have taken place, that I wish had taken place, and that I imagined too place."
She explains the meaning of "ten ring" in the title: it's the highest possible score one can achieve on a shooting range. And even though she has never shot a gun, the idea behind the expression "merges with my desire to hit that ten ring as close as I can in the exactness of the poem's meaning." SCARCE, especially when signed.
CONDITION: Staples slightly rusted. A Near Fine copy. (Inventory #: 1554)
