This book also has a hard cover edition limited to eight copies. It is also out of print.
You can read about this book on my blog Link. Oh. I don't have the link yet, because I have to redo the post, since I'm moving it from another blog I had. Really.
About the Book
This is a poem that started in 2003 while I was in Oysterville, WA, at a month-long writer's fellowship. When I came home, I had written &/or revised sixty poems. This one was practically a haiku. I worked on it, editing, revising, re-reading, and repeating the process until I came up with this final version, which is a poem in seven parts.
This is one of the poems I wrote to act on the idea of rebuilding a system of myth and story of the Pacific Northwest for those of us who find ourselves without much of a history other than the place itself. So… The Drenched came into being. This strong sense of being part of a place is one of the reasons I've lived on these five acres for over thirty years, and have no real thoughts of ever leaving.
