A magical exploration of Oregon's historic linen industry.
"In the broad Willamette Valley,
There's a village quaint and small
With its blue-eyed flax of summer
And its golden flax of fall;
Where the toilers in the flax plant
And the toilers in the field
Pause to celebrate each autumn
All the flax their labor yields."
