This book entitled "Dead Reckoning And Other Sea Poems" has been inspired by a life-time of living near the Salish Sea. Through poetry, the book explores the flora, fauna & life experiences associated with living near the waters of the Pacific Northwest. The poems reflect the ebb & flow of tide as we pass through the various seasons (spring, summer, autumn & winter). Like the salmon, an icon of the Pacific Northwest, many of the poems reflect this "circle of life", which as intrigued people for centuries. Utilizing a variety of poetic forms, the book contains over two hundred pages of poems about our unique coastal community. It is my hope that you enjoy this exploration of our magnificent region of the world. Enjoy!
