Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Oregonians have always created stories to help themselves and others understand their world. This process of "storytelling the land" began with the Native American tradition of oral storytelling and continues to this day. The World Begins Here guides the reader through these 33 stories of Oregon, ranging from a Nez Perce story of Coyote's attempts to bring his beloved wife back from the dead to stories by many contemporary writers including Ursula Le Guin, Craig Lesley, Barry Lopez, and Ken Kesey.

Review:

"A landmark publication.... This is the key work of the present generation of scholars and writers for Oregon." — Kim R. Stafford, Director, Northwest Writing Institute
