Nature stories, Violence -- Fiction
This fiction collection attempts to convey the essence of Oregon's landscape, nature, and people. Many of these pieces reflect violent behavior, which is sometimes directed from one character to another, and sometimes directed toward nature. Sometimes this violence is mild, sometimes it is horrific. But the reasons for the violence and any connection it has to the landscape, nature, and people of Oregon is left to the reader to decide. The focus of this collection is not to teach lessons--it is to entertain.
