In Deer Drink the Moon, Liz Nakazawa brings together thirty-three poets to create a masterpiece of poetry about the state of Oregon. Organized thematically into seven of the state's ecoregions, this collection takes the reader on a statewide tour through poetry; beginning at the Pacific Ocean with William Stafford's "Waiting by the Sea," traveling through the Willamette Valley with Margaret Chula's "Soliloquy on Rain," and ending in the high deserts of Eastern Oregon with Vince Wixons "Eastern Oregon." Through memorable imagery, the poets create a tribute to Oregon that is painted in lyrics, harvested in poetry, and grown in the hearts of artists. Book jacket.
