Ada Hastings Hedges
Although for the most part forgotten today, Ada Hastings Hedges was among Oregon’s foremost mid–twentieth-century poets. Famous in her lifetime, she was best known for her superb poems set in Oregon’s high desert, which offer a fascinating counterpoint to C.E.S. Wood’s seminal The Poet in the Desert.
This compelling anthology gathers together personal impressions of the Malheur-Steens country of southeastern Oregon. Contributors of poetry and narrative nonfiction include biologists, students, tourists, birders, and local residents.
