Surfers read the patterns of the sea like others read a book. For them, the organization of swells and currents and the curling folds of the waves are elements of a natural language, as coherent in structure and meaning as any taught in school. Each of the eighteen stories in this collection is a raw glimpse of surf life-from sliding into cold, stiff neoprene to experiencing the ecstasy of the Pure Art of Surfing. Most previously published in magazines over the past thirty-five years, the stories in this collection capture the movement, mythology, fantasy, and philosophy of surf life and culture on the sweet and ragged wild edge of beauty.

Is she curing him of his multiple personality disorder-or is he setting her up as his next victim? When Morgan moves her psychotherapy practice from Berkeley to the Lost Coast, she is challenged by wrenching ethical dilemmas the anonymity of city life never prepared her for. She knows too many secrets, and secrets are hard to keep in a small town. Morgan's challenges take a dangerous turn when her neighbor, Rosy, takes in her cousin, a young woman recovering from chemotherapy. Morgan doesn't know it, but she's not the only one keeping secrets. "Carlisle" isn't Rosy's cousin. She's hiding from a man who tried to murder her. A man who now comes into Morgan's office, seeking help. As Morgan struggles with confidentiality conflicts, her own self-deceptions, and the deceptions of her small town neighbors, Jerry's madness forces her to make a dangerous choice that could cost Morgan her life. Karen Lawson grew up in San Francisco as a tree-climbing, Catholic military brat. From age twelve to twenty she lived in Japan, where she studied essence and existence at a German Jesuit University in Tokyo.

At times confusing herself with Che Guevara, Karen joined a group of back-to-the-landers in a bold and spirited experiment in alternative life and ownership in the mountains of Southern Humboldt, where this novel is set.

"The Lost Coast is one of the last undeveloped stretches of the California coastline, with mountains that rise thousands of feet from the sea. Located approximately 200 miles north of San Francisco, this remote area of pristine beauty is comprised of jagged cliffs, rocky shorelines, and black sand beaches. It is the only significant stretch of California without a highway. Rich in natural resources, the area was once a haven for Native Americans such as the Coast Yuki, Sinkyone, Mattole, and the Wiyot. Now it is a secluded landscape with a few isolated towns surrounded by conservation areas. The famed Lost Coast Trail begins in northern Mendocino County in the Sinkyone Wilderness and continues up into Humboldt County and the King Range National Conservation Area. During the 1800s, the Lost Coast bustled with logging settlements and mill towns. After logging wound down, those towns disappeared, and only remnants of their existence remain. From Westport north to Ferndale, this book showcases historical photographs from libraries, historical societies, and residents." -- From cover
