Peninsulas and Islands: A Tale for Coastal Communities, a review by Margaret Hammitt-McDonald of North Coast by Charles A. Le Guin.
— Upper Left Edge
Charles Le Guin blends the comfort of a small coastal community and the wonder of Native American folklore in his delightful debut novel, North Coast.
— Portland Oregonian
This is a novel to curl up to on a rainy day. The narrator as youth is inspired by a developing relationship with a young Native American to make a soul’s journey from“there to here.” Part of here is the northern Oregon coast, beautifully evoked.

North Coast is a gift. Read it for its graceful evocation of our coastal woods and towns and weather. Read it for its gentle warm-heartedness, for its beautiful, lucid prose, for the dignity of its people. Just read it.
