Description
Ursula Le Guin's "Always Coming Home "is a major work of the imagination from one of America's most respected writers of science fiction.

A rich and complex interweaving of story and fable, poem, artwork, and music, it totally immerses the reader in the culture of the Kesh, a peaceful people of the far future who inhabit a place called the Valley on the Northern Pacific Coast.
