Join award-winning poet and photographer Jennifer Preston Chushcoff as she journeys through Washington's foggy forests, waterfalls, cranberry bogs and nature preserves to gather 48 poems, 103 full-color photographs and hundreds of interesting facts.

Combining her love of science, the natural world and language, Jennifer travels 3,700 miles, from the wild Pacific coastline to the mysterious Scablands. She returns with expressive photos and intimate poems that examine questions of faith and mortality to geological processes and the structure of snowflakes. Interlaced throughout are facts about Washington's agriculture, climate and geography. A Name the Rain Dictionary, Northwest Pronunciation Guide and conservation tips are also included.

Explore the seasons of the Evergreen State as she reveals the intricate connection of water to our past, present and future.
