"I like Hale Thatcher's poetry because it comes to the edge of the supernatural and then stays there. But it is really our own, shared world: the natural perceived with such pure wonder, through such clear senses, that it seems supernatural. And it's very beautiful writing."
Thom Gunn

"A poet of deep and penetrating talent"
Cecile Pineda

"Not only a nature poet, he is a primitive, a visionary. He is to poetry what Henri Rousseau is to painting.."
Patrick Brinton
