“McBride takes us on a glorious tour of the area: to the farms of Port Oneida, to the little town of Empire, to the vistas of Pierce Stocking Drive and the thrill of Pyramid Point and its shipwrecks.”
~ Betsy Wagner, Glen Arbor Arts Center Artist-in-Residence Program
“In her luminous work, Elizabeth McBride’s elegant and earthbound writing creates that uncommon experience only a fine artist can give us.”
