This Sacred Earth and Other Poems
1996 0-7734-2710-4
This volume of poems is derived from the poet's experience of the Pacific Northwest Coast and is characterized by a quiet precision of natural imagery, local place names, and themes drawn from the region's folklife. From the fishing villages and lumber towns south of Seaside, Oregon, and along the coast of western Washington, she draws upon a poetic langugage that is at once dreamy, evocative, and ethereal, and yet vigorous and earthy.
