The Tom Robbins' essay is one of my favorites and is a fantastic explanation of why people live in the rainy wonder that is the Pacific Northwest. I'd already read the David James Duncan essay in his River Teeth collection. I love his stories and am working my way through all his books. I realy enjoyed reading the work of other Northwest writers that I wasn't before familiar with. Brenda Peterson's essay about belugas & dolphins was amazing. Oh to touch a whale's skin....
