One Leaf Shaking is the first collection of Robin Skelton's later poetry written and compiled during the 1980s when he was both at the apex of his career and revered for his standing in academic circles. Poems included in this volume are taken from four titles previously published by Sono Nis, Oolichan and Porcupine's Quill Landmarks, Limits, Distances and Opening and attests to his incredible range and prolific talent. The work also includes verse that comprised two chapbooks, Words for Witches and De Nihilio , and seventeen previously unpublished poems.

Renowned for his mentorship and entrepreneurial energies in every creative arena, Skelton applies his generous intellect and quiet insight to the world he both recalls and reclaims, a world fashioned by the hands of a master craftsman and linked thematically to reflect the poet's shifting attentions yet constant interest. In order to fully appreciate one of Canada's unofficial poet laureates, add this volume to your library of cherished classics. With an introduction by Harold Rhenisch.
