Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Oregon has always been a place of hope and new beginning. This wide-ranging anthology of essays, speeches, and works of biography, history, and journalism records Oregonians' dreams, their fulfillments, and their frustrations. Varieties of Hope illustrates the richness of the Oregon experience — its challenges, rewards, and diversity. Chief Joseph, Sallie Tisdale, C.E.S. Wood, William O. Douglas, Ursula Le Guin, and 52 other writers explore subjects as diverse as the Pendleton Roundup, the Portland Trail Blazers, Mt. St. Helens, and the responses of Oregonians to their region and their world.

"[This series] confirms Oregon's place as a powerful outpost in Northwest regional literature." — Paul Pintarich, The Oregonian

"The Oregon Literature Series is considered a national model.... Another wonderful Oregon project." — John Frohnmayer, Chair, National Endowment for the Arts
