The Hungry Coast: Fables from the North Shore of Minnesota

Stories by Marlais Olmstead Brand & Woodcuts by Noah Prinsen, North Star Press of St. Cloud, Inc. $14.95


Author Marlais Olmstead Brand writes her first collection of short stories, featuring seven short fables that span over two centuries and takes place at various locations along the North Shore of Lake Superior. Mysterious legends, ghosts and myths make this collection a quick, but memorable read. The author is a Minnesota resident and a recipient of the Katherine Anne Porter Fiction Prize. To accompany each story is a woodcut art print by Grand Marais resident and artist Noah Prinsen. The woodcuts are carved from pine and hand-printed on an antique Line-O-Scribe press, creating a beautiful, yet eerie print to correspond with each fable. This collection is a must read for anyone interested in the North Shore.—Breana Roy
