Multcolib My Librarian Darcee: The Oregon Coast in books
Annotation:“One man’s tuna sandwich-eatin’ Shack is another’s love Shack.” A guide to both an age-old Oregon tradition and a call to a participate in the fun and gratifying work of driftwood fort building.
Annotation:Who are the people behind those crab boats docked at Newport's marina? This journal-memoir by an Oregon fisherman's wife offers a straight-forward account of the struggles, devastating loss and small triumphs of a present day commercial fishing family.
Annotation:Despite being a work of fiction, Doyle perfectly captures the eccentric spirit of a small town on the Oregon coast, where it seems perfectly plausible that a crow would talk.
Annotation:I could include nearly all of Matt Love's books on this list, but Super Sunday in Newport with essays about local taverns and teaching at my alma mater, remains closest to my heart.
Annotation:I remember when an episode of Falcon Crest was filmed on the Oregon Coast. I wish I'd been around when the cast of Sometimes A Great Notion came to town instead. Reading these great stories and anecdotes from local residents is the next best thing.
