Hunters of the Columbian mammoth

by del valle, adrian

Twelve thousand years ago along the Pacific Coast of what would one day become the state of Oregon, generations of hunting to feed an expanding population were depleting the Native American's resources. Forests that were once rich in deer and elk, took longer to make the kills needed to feed the tribes.

There will be drink, made with patience in time-honored ways.I will not mislead you when it comes to my intentions. The stories in this collection vary widely, as conversations around...
