About the author (1996)

Noel Peattie (1932-2005) centered much of his literary work on rural life in the Capay Valley in northern California. A gentle and authentic voice for the region, he wrote of it rhythms and shadings with pride, candor, and sensitivity. Among his published work are five collections of poetry, a small book on sea monsters, and a novel. His interests and commitments to the issues of truth, freedom, and social responsibility and justice are represented in Freedom to Lie: A Debate about Democracy (McFarland press, 1989). His newsletter, Sipapu, a review of small press counterculture literature and ephemera, was collected in A Passage for Dissent: The Best of Sipapu, 1970-1988 (McFarland Press, 1989). In 1995 Peattie was honored as the first winner of the American Library Association's Jackie Eubanks memorial Award for outstanding achievement in promoting the acquisition and use of alternative materials in libraries.
