The “poems” in Mining in the Black Hills are visual experimentations heavy with textual reconfigurations, visual props, graphics and other genre-crossing devices. The unifying theme is sense of place—whether this is a geographical awareness, or a reminder that the world exists solely within the boundaries of our senses.
"... no matter how hard I try, I cannot recreate Derek White’s impeccable use of textual images & visuals disorientation as they are represented on the printed page – so take the lyric of these pieces for what they are, because the last print copies of MINING IN THE BLACK HILLS are already gone." —J.A. Tyler, in review for Big Other
