New Yuba River e-book available at iTunes

A slim chapbook of poetry and prose with images from the Yuba River Watershed by Sierra Nevada writer, Pamela Biery has just been released on the iTunes Store. Swimming Into Sunsets: Writing & Photographs Inspired by the Yuba River is optimized for tablet mixed media viewing and reading.

“The Yuba River can be seen as an actual objective phenomenon, or subjectively, as it is reflected in our feelings or culture. This is the subtle, but very real landscape, much of which remains invisible to our mind and hearts until we experience it. Through words the landscape is perpetually kept alive and the flat objective landscape is given identity

Pamela Biery’s words and photographs reflect on the subtle and sublime world of the Yuba River. She experiences the river canyon by opening to it and letting it flow. We all respond to such splendor in our own way but few of us articulate it as well as she does.” —Hank Meals, from the Introduction of Swimming into Sunsets

This short collection drawn from the Yuba River Watershed provides an introspective view of seasons along the Yuba River and its surrounding environs.

Swimming Into Sunsets is available as an e-book on the iTunes book store for $4.99. 20% or more of book proceeds will be donated to the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL). Learn more at”_blank” .
