BOOKS FOR ADULTS:
Song of Six Rivers by Zev Levinson
This epic poem relates one man’s life-changing experiences throughout the Humboldt Bay region of northern California, depicting the area’s geography and history along the way, through both poetry and archival photography. When the muse of this work, Guy Kuttner, died unexpectedly, Zev Levinson heard his voice imploring him to sing of the land they both love. As a roving teacher, Zev had come to know the Six Rivers terrain and communities intimately. He put his pen to the task of meeting Guy’s daunting challenge, confronting mortality and loss as he ventured to understand our connection to earth.

This work captures the heart of Humboldt county, California and records a small piece of our legacy. In the canyons of Eden, the dance begins.” — PAUL RICKARD, Humboldt Open Air Watercolor Painter
