Thoughts From Timber Country In "Overstory: Zero"

Sylph Maid Books

A lot has changed in Oregon's timber country in the last 20 years.  So it seems only fitting that a collection of stories and essays about timber country should be brought up to date. 

Robert Leo Heilman of Myrtle Creek first published Overstory: Zero in 1995. 

And as he puts it, there's been a lot of water down Myrtle Creek since then. 

So he revised and polished and cut and added to the collection for a 20th anniversary edition. 

He joins us in the studio to talk about life in timber country, and how he sees it... then and now.
