9780882408958: Wind on the Waves: Stories from the Oregon Coast

Wind on the Waves is a collection of fifty-two stories that embody the beauty, mystery, and allure of Oregon’s magnificent coast. Written by award-winning author and poet Kim Stafford, these wonderful vignettes celebrate the people, towns, wildlife, culture, and natural beauty of one of America’s most rugged, beautiful, and enchanting coastlines. Wind on the Waves evokes the feelings of wonder and  joy, the miracle of existence, the significance of humanity—and its insignificance compared to the power of the sea. Being open to the world is a gift—one which Kim Stafford has shared so well. These words from one of Oregon’s most influential writers are the song of life sung on the stage of the shore, and the wind, and the waves.

From the Author:

“My friend, you wanted to be wind on the waves—not the schooner, or even the sail that bellied and caught it. You wanted to be the wind itself. You wanted to dance and scamper, to be the spiral that hugs the planet, the wisp of travel that nudges sand, the local everywhere, tireless, fervent, invisible, unstoppable you.”

                                                                        —Kim Stafford from the Wind on the Waves

About the Author:
