"The inland cabin that we bought stands near… the north bank of a wide Rogue meander. The location could not be more convenient for my wanderings… South of us, and north of us, other coastal streams and creeks run their courses to the Pacific. There will be different smells to these rivers than I have known elsewhere, different bird-cries, and different beetles under different stones. There will be secrets at each bend, roadside secrets and trailside secrets. Gathering these will be my pastime. Learning these will be my study, as will the subtle ways that the strange turns known and then, at last, familiar."
