Today on Never a Niche Live, I would like to share some folklore about Oregon.

"Today's presentation is a famous work of fiction that many people mistakenly think is a true story. It’s a story written in 1899 by Lischen Miller, the sister-in-law of famous Oregon writer Joachin Miller, and published in a West Coast literary magazine called Pacific Monthly. Published, I should say, as a work of fiction. Miller never represented her story as anything else."

Today's podcast examines a tale of an Oregon lighthouse and, I felt, was an interesting story of how tales like these continue to grow and mold into truth.
