Unlocks the history and significance of the rock band The Doors in terms of Jim Morrison's published poetry. The book gives us a window into an epic struggle for cultural change, and how it was suppressed. A great way to get started with Jim's poetry and Doors history.

"Every time I pick up the new edition of "Burning The May Tree", I discover a thought or idea about Jim’s poetry that strikes me as unique and insightful. Yours is the only book to shine a focused, intelligent and critical light on Morrison’s writing."- Frank Lisciandro, co-editor of "Wilderness" and "The American Night", books of Jim Morrison's posthumously published poetry.

Paperback published in 2019, signed by author. Includes custom-made bookmark.
