“Jerry Johnson has the true songwriter's gift: his lyrics seem so simple, but that's a deception. The more one listens — and the tunes are brilliantly served by the excellent Jon Gailmor and Pete Sutherland — the deeper they get. What a pleasure this album is!”
— Sydney Lea, Poet Laureate of Vermont
“Reading Jerry's work sometimes feels to me like taking a brisk walk on a Vermont autumn day, with its crisp gusts of wind, changes of weather and mood, solemn moments and cheerful moments, tremendous energy, and the pleasure of sudden glimpses of lovely, unexpected light.”
— Reeve Lindbergh, Vermont poet and author
“Jerry Johnson's voice from the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont is authentic and revealing of life led fully in the embrace of his land in all seasons, his beloved animal companions, his first-person knowing of the weather and what it means to live a life found nowhere else.  I hope this poetry finds its way to the young who will surely be inspired, to the older ones among us whom he celebrates so warmly.”
— Peggy Sapphire, Vermont poet
