About this title


From the myths of the Yokuts Indians to stories and poems of famous contemporary writers, this ground breaking anthology showcases the best of California's Great Central Valley writings.

Unlike New England or the South, the Central Valley has never been recognized as a region of literary significance. And yet this flat farming region, nestled between the Sierra Nevada and the coast, has produced a surprising body of magnificent writing. This anthology includes more than 70 writers, storytellers, and poets, each interpreting the Valley from their own perspective and personal experience. Together, they provide a rich view of the region's physical and emotional landscape.

This is American literature at its best - literature as authentic and as powerful as the land that inspired it.

About the Author:

Stan Yogi is a writer living in Oakland whose father grew up in the Central Valley. His critical writings on literature have appeared in numerous journals and magazines, and he regularly reviews books for the "San Francisco Chronicle."
