Teaser Tuesday: Another Way the River Has



While he maneuvered to pass a towline to the disabled trawler, a breaker caught the lifeboat broadside.  The boat did what it was designed to do in overpowering conditions [-- it] began a 360-degree roll.
-- from "Surf Savvy" in Another Way the River Has: Taut True Tales from the Northwest by Robin Cody (published by OSU Press).
This is a terrific collection of essays by the author of Ricochet River.  Set in Oregon and Washington, but definitely stories with universal appeal.

For those in the area, Robin Cody will be reading from this book tomorrow night at the Press Club.  Details here.


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Jennifer -- Most of the essays are pretty contemplative, but this one about the Coast Guard lifeboat was very exciting. Thanks for leaving your link.

Amy -- These essays are very personal and all super interesting. I like the book a lot.

Awesome teaser in just a few words.

I love the flow of the title; it suggests the contents will be equally delicious. And the teaser is equally suggestive. Very tantalizing.
