    One thought on “Coast Range: A Collection from the Pacific Edge”

    1. I grew up in Oregon, so reading these essays was like revisiting places and experiences I have had but through new eyes I appreciated how the author alternated between essays that wove together research and experience in a straightforward narrative such as the carcass toss or homestead with lyric essays that were playful with words and phrasing like a guide to coyote management and chanty I was not aware of the journey an agate makes, I only have memories of filling jars with them during summe [...]

    2. Coast Range is a series of reflective essays by Nicholas Keeley, written about his experiences and observations living in the mountains of Oregon The essays broach a wide range of topics, from the ecology of salmon reproduction and farming to the historical trends in underwater gold mining The essays also vary greatly in style some are documentary while others are poetic or metaphysical As an avid consumer of natural history writing, and fan of authors like Annie Dillard who bridge natural hist [...]

    3. An amazing collection of writing about my home territory of the Klamath Siskiyou bioregion with fresh perspectives on topics from agates to gold dredging, from the Rogue River to the Table Rocks, from hummingbirds to coyotes to chanterelles and the management and celebration of salmon I can t wait to read from this awesome young writer.

    4. A beautifully designed book that is as good as it looks Neely s essays cover newts, chanterelles, a Native American salmon ceremony, and my favorite, Homestead, the same artist s residency on the Rogue River that John Daniel writes about He mixes vivid description with meticulous detail.

    5. Some of the essays were a good read, but nothing to inspirational or exciting Quite a few essays were kinda boring.

    6. This was a win I entered because of the title I ve owned property in three different coastrange communities first Fieldbrook and Honeydew in northern California and now over 20 years in Deadwood, Oregon.Our Deadwood home is a private in holding inside Siuslaw National Forest about 20 miles inland from the beach at Yahachts that is a center theme of the first essay That piece nearly put me off reading the book It has way too many references to all the people you study in college There is somethin [...]

    7. Any fan of writing as it relates to nature, especially the West Coast of America, will greatly enjoy this In the current political climate, it reminded me of the fragility of our ecosystems and how important science and stewardship The carcass toss especially are to our environment Some impatience on my part and perhaps some lack of narrative drive I found myself looking for the end of one essay and the beginning of a new prevented me from giving a higher rating Discovering Anna was another favo [...]

    8. CHPC book group folks who heard me talk about my participation in the Omaha Public Library book selections this is one of my successful contributions I liked the writing and especially enjoyed the stories about the history of the Rogue Valley and Rogue Wars, some of which I knew and some of which I didn t, and some of which I probably did and forgot For example when salmon die after spawning decompose near the river bank, they provide nutrients for the trees, which keeps humans alive We are all [...]
