Walk There!: 50 Treks in and around Portland and Vancouver by Laura Foster
Walk There!: 50 Treks in and around Portland and Vancouver

John Andersen, September 5, 2009

I've completed all 50 walks.

This is without question, the best undertaking I've ever done to learn about the Portland/Vancouver area.

Looking back, I'm thrilled to have discovered so many diverse neighborhoods, and so many interesting homes, coffee shops, restaurants, historical sites, trees, wildlife, vistas, and last but not least, people.

If you want to "go on vacation" every weekend for the next year, and spend a pittance, this is the book for you.

I continue revisiting many of the walks. Some I've done more than a dozen times.

This is made possible by connecting these walks with my daily schedule of carpet cleaning (I have my own business). If a job is in North Portland, for instance, I just go a couple hours early (before rush hour) and catch a Walk There walk on the way.

It's a splendid start to each day.

I simply can't thank Metro enough for creating such a great little book.

Mine is highly dog-eared.

Citadel of the Spirit: Oregon's Sesquicentennial Anthology Signed Edition by Matt Love
Citadel of the Spirit: Oregon's Sesquicentennial Anthology Signed Edition

John Andersen, December 27, 2008

My 16 year old son and I met Matt at the Oregon Historical Society's Authors Party this month, and purchased the book at that time.

We absolutely love it; such a grand collection of diverse and otherwise unheard voices that reflect our state's fascinating and unconventional past.

I'm particularly pleased that Matt's book is fueling our son's interest in history.
