About the Book

Where the River Flows has been inspired by a lifetime of living near the Salish Sea. Through poetry, the book explores the flora, fauna, and life experiences associated with living near the waters of the Pacific Northwest. The poems reflect the ebb and flow of tide as we pass through the various seasons (spring, summer, autumn, and winter). Like the salmon, an icon of the Pacific Northwest, many of the poems reflect this circle of life, which has 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!
