In 1976 Linda Zapf was an aspiring singer/songwriter. Empowered by youthful innocence and curiosity to travel the not yet chartered roads of life, set out with two friends from high school on an unforgettable journey through the United States. Pioneering the fearless art of hang gliding, they searched America to find the highest mountain. There they could spread their hand-sown wings and learn to love an expression of American freedom that had scarcely been explored. The passion that ensued, passed through her music and into her daily life – raising her three children, and caring for her husband. She writes about her love for the beautiful state of Oregon, a young life of adventure, romance and the everyday trials and joys of being a mother and housewife.
All the time, she never let the expression of music leave her thoughts. Her desire to pick up her guitar and sit down at the piano, capturing a momentary melody, thought, and emotion will always remain a part of her daily existence.
The music in this collection, gathered over the last 25 years is proof of her enlightened spirit and her endearing passion. Truly a legacy that would touch the heart of every woman, man and child.
