Everyone Out Here Knows: A Big Foot Tale by William Stafford, illus. by Angelina Marino-Heidel

Oregon Reads selection for 2014!  This thoughtful, brightly illustrated, William Stafford poem invites you for a walk through Bigfoot country; the fields, swamps and mountains of Oregon.  The words spark the imagination and capture the feeling and mystery of Bigfoot. Stafford was named Poet Laureate of Oregon in 1974, was a prolific writer and a literature professor at Lewis & Clark college.  The illustrations were created by Mariano-Heidel, whose work paint, mixed media and mural work can be seen in public & private spaces all over Oregon & beyond.  As an added bonus the flyleaves are decorated with Pacific NW native plants and includes a list of flora & fauna to find!

Thanks for the review Chrissy!

Have a day of epic proportions!
