MURPHY, N.C. - Oct. 30, 2013 - PRLog -- Scott T. Starbuck’s The Other History puts the poet’s lens on the real buried underneath suburban legends of Christopher Columbus “discovering” America and making it a better place, the illusion that hard work in society will commonly be rewarded with material and spiritual success, that corporate and political leadership will figure things out for the common good, and that modern capitalist culture’s onslaught on wild places and wild animals is sustainable. Starbuck's book refutes these lies by blending news reports with the deeper poetic flow of human feeling that has been “unreported, underreported,” or silenced in popular media and textbooks.

After publicly challenging a representative of the offshore oil industry in 1989, Scott T. Starbuck wrote The City of Depoe Bay’s Memorial Against Offshore Oil Drilling to the Oregon Governor’s Ocean Resources Management Task Force. Currently, he works as a Creative Writing Coordinator and World Literature Coordinator at San Diego Mesa College, frequently traveling between San Diego and the Pacific Northwest. A former fishing boat captain of the Starfisher in Depoe Bay, Oregon, he has been a writer-in-residence at The Sitka Center for Art and Ecology on Cascade Head and an Artsmith Fellow on Orcas Island. Starbuck offers to read his work at colleges, universities, book clubs, churches, or anywhere humans are concerned about wild animals and wild places. He blogs at riverseek.blogspot.com.

The paperpback and Kindle editions of The Other History are now available on Amazon and in FutureCycle Press's catalog at www.futurecycle.org. A Free Kindle Saturday promotion and Goodreads Giveaway are planned for December.
