In she was named Poet Laureate of New Hampshire. She was born in Meadville, Pennsylvania, and received her M. Each chapter is like a prose poem, shedding increasing light on the challenge of finding "home" without the illusion of permanence, a quest based not on ownership but on affinity and familiarity with an area and its people.
Cynthia Huntington expands her theme through images of the landscape, the shack, the new marriage. The shack, named "Euphoria," is built as a house set on stilts above the sand, to take the wind under it.

Only a partial shelter, it is inhabited for only one season a year, yet it endures. The outer cape has the feel of a place for migrants and drifters -- for birds and other wildlife, and for people such as artists, fishermen, and coast guardsmen. A place where "year-round" often means several addresses. Similarly, her narrative describes improvised, fragile beginnings: a new marriage, learning to be at home in the world, becoming intimate with the natural world, without the necessity of settling down.
The Salt House shares a world that is less natural history or memoir than it is neighborhood exploration -- the process of learning a place and becoming native to it.
The Salt House: A Summer on the Dunes of Cape Cod
Lucky Huntington to have lived in such a place, enviable Huntington to have applied so keenly the exigent art of seeing. In The Salt House, Huntington walks the same square mile of dunes over and over again and finds the world there. She gives us what she discovers, like beach wrack, each observation carefully picked and weighed, kept in the pocket for when we need it most.
