Overview

Wind on the Waves is a collection of fifty-two stories that embody the beauty, mystery, and allure of Oregon’s magnificent coast. Written by award-winning author and poet Kim Stafford, these wonderfully written vignettes celebrate the people, towns, wildlife, culture, and natural beauty of one of America’s most rugged, beautiful, and enchanting coast lines. Wind on the Waves evokes the feelings of wonder and joy, the miracle of existence, the significance of humanity—and its insignificance compared to the power of the sea. Being open to the world is a gift—one which Kim Stafford has shared so well. These words from one of Oregon’s most influential writers are the song of life sung on the stage of the shore, and the wind, and the waves.
