Mar 24, 2011 1 Comment by

In our fourth Writers Read segment, we’ll hear from Ruby Murray, a writer and photographer who lives in the Columbia River estuary.

Murray is an enrolled Osage Indian, whose work focuses on people finding home within multiple cultures. She’s come to know the River and its history through her 1stgeneration Norwegian-American husband. A poem and photo-essay reflecting life on the Lower River was published in American Ghost, edited by Lillien Waller for Stockport Flats, 2011.

    I loved the gentle, clear sweet voice of the author reading her poem and I appreciated the author’s attention to detail using the correct fishing terms gleaned from her husbands interesting background. There was a sense of what was lost but not in a melancholy way – just a matter of fact observation.
