Taken together; the text and the photographs become a journey for us through the touchstones of Raymond Carver's life; his boyhood with his father in Yakima, at Wenas Ridge, and near the Columbia River; his later wanderings in Chino, Sacramento, San Jose, Palo Alto, the bleak, blue-collar towns with their well-worn factories and old saloons where, before his recovery, he drank the hours away. And then Carver's mother, and his daughter, and the friends who meant so much to him; and Tess Gallagher, his wife. 160 pages illustrated from black and white photographs.
