But the book also employs a playful range of forms. Just as forest gives way to bluff and ocean, here narrative journalism adjoins memoir and lyric essay. These associative, sensuous, and sometimes saturnine pieces are further entwined by the theme of Âcollectingâ itselfÂbeginning with a meditation on the impulse to gather beach agates, a semiprecious stone. Another essay follows the journey of salmon from their Âcollectionâ at a hatchery through a casino kitchen to a tribal coming-of-age ceremony; a third is a flitting exploration of hummingbirds.
