Book News Annotation:
Portland, Oregon is situated close to the Cascade mountain range, Pacific Ocean, and scenic areas in between. Traveling north to west, Cunningham, a freelance writer from Eugene, Oregon, presents detailed itineraries for respites 1-3 days away. She includes maps; recommendations for sightseeing, dining, and lodging; and contacts for further information. Even longtime residents might pick up a tip. The compact guide opted for covering a lot of territory instead of including photos. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
