THE BALLAD OF THE NEW CARISSA AND OTHER POEMS celebrates the Oregon Coast in all of its magnificence. Wergeland applies her own set of lenses to this panorama, highlighting the pulse of the weather, shifting sands, and creatures in the sea and on the shore. Humans flirting with dangerous tides do not escape her scrutiny. These poems examine a rich segment of America's Pacific edge.
