Over the course of this chapbook, Jesse Castaldi Keen explores the history, geography, geology, and societies that make up her corner of West Texas. Writing from a perspective carefully situated in her own subject-position, Keen acknowledges with skill and care the trouble of being an observer and an outsider in a society of which she is not part and on land which might rightfully be said to be occupied. Her eye is perceptive and her writing is discerning and attentive; the essays in FIFTEEN VIEWS AND FIVE DISPLACEMENTS: A NATURAL HISTORY OF WEST TEXAS are a thoughtful study in what it means to be, to belong, and to be 'at home' in a place.
