How Many Words for Rain
Poetry and photographs explore rain’s moods, colors, textures within 80 pages.. Although focused on the northwest (and we in the northwest do know rain), this is the perfect gift book for anyone who has too much, too little, a love for, or a hate for rain. This is rain that whispers, rains that shouts, rain that leaves behind memories.
