"Poetry comes in many forms, each word stemming from the heart that moves the pen. Joel L. Young's American Lyricon is a work that truly has been drawn from the recesses of his inner being. His love, respect and understanding for America are felt with every dip of his pen and transferred onto the hearts of those who read his words. Written from deposits that have been placed within his spirit by people, events and places he has encountered in his life, his words sting the conscience of our souls and demand our minds to remember, to cry, to laugh and to hope. He makes us see America at her best, America in her struggles, and feel the sorrows and joys of our fellow Countrymen, all bringing to fruition what America was yesterday, what America is today, and what America will be tomorrow. American Lyricon speaks forth the heart of America. Whispers of the past, thoughts for the present and prayers for the future are the feelings etched in my heart after reading this work. One phrase from Canadian Skyline will remain with me forever: 'Whose mist is the breath of God!' Outstanding!"--Shirley Johnson, Midwest Book Review
