On Mount Hood: A Biography of Oregon's Perilous Peak by Jon Bell
On Mount Hood: A Biography of Oregon's Perilous Peak

Matt Werbach, September 30, 2011

Jon Bell did an incredible job of making the history, geology and true measure of this mountain both educating and compelling. To entertain while informing is an art all its own, and Bell is practiced and deft. Bell weaves the more disparate elements of Mount Hood's storied past together by sharing his personal exploration of the Timberline Trail. That thread holds the whole piece together. You may think you know Mount Hood; you don't. Bell will surprise even the most researched and bookish among us.
