WA IS WATER 7 cover.jpg

Explore Washington State in poems, photos and facts with award-winning poet and photographer Jennifer Preston Chushcoff as she journeys through Washington's foggy forests, waterfalls, cranberry bogs and nature preserves to gather 48 poems, 103 full-color photos and hundreds of interesting water-related facts about the wet and wild state. 


Jennifer took two years to explore all four corners and seasons of the Evergreen State. She returned with nature poems that reveal the intricate connection of water to our past, present and future.
