About Peter Lindsey
Professor Peter Milhouse Lindsey has been, at turns: an English professor, folklorist, human excrement burner, surveyor, union butcher, chanterellist, surf lifeguard, teacher, author, doll maker, dish washer, wood cutter, artilleryman, contractor, Santa Claus, candy man, cascara bark harvester, rolling pin turner, salmon troller, purse seiner, herring gill netter, distance runner, and beachcomber. Being of Scots/German stock, he likes a pot of barley pop at the end of a long day. His senses quiver when he encounters a succulent word or phrase. The revised edition of his book, "Comin’ in Over the Rock," will be available in early June, 2016. His folklore appears in "The Well-Traveled Casket," "Oregon Folklore," and "The Stories We Tell: An Anthology of Oregon Folk Literature."
