Wordstock 2008 – Barbara Drake

Barbara Drake is a real gem of an Oregon poet. If you don’t know her work, check it out. Her memoir, “Peace at Heart,” chronicles her move out of the city and into a rural area in the Willamette Valley. It is a wonderfully unassuming work that is rich with details about the difficulties and wonders of pastoral living.
