Just Between Us is a celebration of the vivid human connections that occur when traveling through some of the world’s most stirring landscapes. David McElroy, a former pilot, transports us from the Arctic to the tropics, over rural and urban lands, and even into the landscape of dreams. Throughout his verse is a sense of longing and the desire for intimacy, showing that despite our diverse lives, we are all driven to share our existences with one another.

Just Between Us touches that sweet spot between poet and writer with its palpable appreciation of the many facets of the lives we are given to lead. Reading Just Between Us releases endorphins that allow us to embrace our own lives with an extra burst of energy, strength, and joy.”—Merrily Weisbord, author of The Love Queen of Malabar

David McElroy lives in Anchorage, Alaska, and recently retired as a commercial pilot of small planes in the Arctic in support of wildlife research, industry, and wildfire control. He has two previous books of poems, Making it Simple and Mark Making.
