Another Way the River Has: Taut True Tales from the Northwest (Northwest Readers) Cover

 

Review-A-Day

"In Robin Cody's new book of collected essays Another Way the River Has: Taut True Tales From the Northwest, he reaches that lofty point of high-quality regional writing most often when he takes to the Willamette and Columbia rivers in his boat The Turtle: 'As I lay in the cabin, waiting for sleep, the moon broke clear and silver and bright,' Cody writes. 'Light from the long gone sun — in a sensational bank shot — reflections off reflections — bounced from the moon, ricocheted off the river, and rippled the white ceilings of The Turtle.'" Peter Sleeth, The Oregonian (Read the entire Oregonian review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Another Way the River Has collects Robin Cody's finest nonfiction writings, many appearing for the first time in print. Cody's prose rings with a sense of place. He is a native speaker who probes the streams and woods and salmon that run to the heart of what it means to live and love, to work and play, in Oregon. His characters — from loggers to fishers to cowboys to the kids on his school bus — are smart and curious, often offbeat, always vivid. Cody brings the ear of a novelist and the eye of a reporter to the people and places that make the Northwest, and Northwest literature, distinctive.

Review:

"This collection illustrates that the most unforgettable character proves to be Cody himself — empathetic, clear-eyed, humorous. This remarkable Northwest book is a rare gift — worth owning and sharing." Craig Lesley, author of Burning Fence and Winterkill

Review:

"Robin Cody listens for grace and guts and laughter and courage.... He is one of the great storycatchers and storytellers who ever hatched in the Great North Wet." Brian Doyle, author of The Grail: A year ambling & shambling through an Oregon vineyard in pursuit of the best pinor noir wine in the whole wild world
