"Understanding The Rain" is a unique memoir of my personal experiences in the great outdoors. I have spent many hours in the natural beauty of Oregon and have met some of the most interesting people on earth. From these "wise souls" I have learned the lessons of life that I pass on in this book about a remarkable land called Oregon. I conclude the book with "The Rain Poems", a short collection of Oregon inspired poems. This book will change your understanding, not only of the rain, but also of life as it is lived in the Northwest.
