A sampling:

Regarding her song, "The Gift of the Trees' (J.B. Goodenough; Arr. T. Makem)Tommy Makem wrote,"My friend, the late J.B. Goodenough had a way with words and a surprising way of looking at things that is denied to most of us mere mortals." Tommy Makem's Christmas 1995—Shanachie 52041 CD From http://clancybrothersandtommymakem.com/tm_d19_christmas.htm


Her books of poetry:
"Bury the Blackbird Here: Poems" by J.B. Goodenough
'For years, poet Judy Goodenough traded poems, songs and inspiration with Gordon. Before she died, she asked Gordon to publish her last book of poetry. Not afraid to tell it like it is, her poems are rural New England, as raw as the granite hills. Sometimes eerie, often humorous, Gordon says, "No one could snap my literary garters like she could."'
