new collection from scott t. starbuck

Cascadia Review contributor Scott T. Starbuck’s new book, River Walker, is now available from Mountains and Rivers Press. This poetry collection details his adventures and misadventures from the Rogue River in southern Oregon to the Tanana River in Alaska.

Thomas Rain Crowe says Starbuck’s collection “… takes us to his secret fishing holes, introduces us to river mermaids, teaches us river etiquette, and how to fish the wind. A true bioregional fisher-of-salmon-and-of-men in the tradition of Snyder and Jeffers, his stories and cultural memories are as good as it gets. His relationship to the rivers and the river people of the northwest coast is profound. Amidst hidden haikus and as if writing on water, when he writes lines like ‘A thought sprouts like a golden chanterelle, / whatever they offer you to live away from here / is not enough,’ we, the readers, are the lucky fishermen for having caught his words.”

In addition to being available at Mountains and Rivers Press, River Walker is at Powell’s Books in Portland, Oregon; The Sausage Kitchen in Gladstone, Oregon; Solstice in Bingen, Washington; the Newport Public Library in Newport, Oregon; the Sno-Isle Library System in the Snohomish and Island counties of Washington; the Whatcom Community College Library in Bellingham, Washington; and the Fraser Valley Regional Library System in British Columbia, Canada.
