From the pristine natural settings to the vibrant town atmospheres, the region comes to life in this collection.
“In this book you will find fifty-seven local authors explaining in fifty-seven different ways why they enjoy living along the southern Oregon coast: it’s beauty, history and inspiration, its people, flora, fauna and relatively mild weather, its fishing, hunting, pristine forests, beaches and laid-back atmosphere.” -- Gary Carter
