"After a long hibernation, the voice of the Northern lands emerges through the poems of Niillas Holberg. In the quest for answers and solutions in these troubled times, we are called to listen to stories from the Earth's northern hemisphere. In these poems we are invited to know birches, terns, wolves and rivers as kin.
To feel the Earth again with our bare feet, bare hands and dive into the waters unfettered by the constraints of Modernity. The poems are simple, elegant, graceful, like the falling snow, clear cool water over stones in streams, birch leave rustling in the wind." –Miguel Rivera, translator of In the Courtyard of the Moon
"Underfoot is an irresistibly elegant, approachable and a unique entity by its expression; one of best books of poetry in 2019. The book is a downright magnificent entity in any criteria. Holmberg's poetic language and land are inseparably connected to each other." –Turun Sanomat
