Anna C. SwainOut of boredom and desperation, Anna C. Swain began rhyming aloud in the dark during late night feedings to soothe her infant daughter back to sleep. Rather than have her committed, her husband encouraged her to shower, then write down the rhyming couplets that became the self-published book "Animas Animal Adventures: Durango to Silverton." The poem formed rapidly, and Anna felt exhilaration in creating an artistic work that showed her daughter all the things she loves most about living in Southwest Colorado.
