Publisher Comments:

Come explore the sights, sounds, scents, and stories of Oregon's dry side, the stunning, vast, sunny East, which is the state's true West. In three extensive, flexible driving and hiking trous of the region, you'll visit the rugged mountains, mysterious fossils, vanilla-scented ponderosa pines, painted desert colors, wildlife and wildflowers, remote outposts, and rich history.

Our expert guide is Alan D. St. John, a naturalist, photographer, native Oregonian, and lifetime dry-side explorer, who shares it all, including some of his own little-known favorite places in Central, Southeastern, and Northeastern Oregon. Illustrated with hundreds of St. John's magnificent photographs, this treasure of a book will delight armchair travelers and intrepid adventurers alike.

Book News Annotation:

Regional maps are provided, in addition to stunning color photos of the areas, and tips on wildflower identification, with a sampling of photos and descriptions of them. Specific places are highlighted throughout. St. John is a naturalist, photographer, and native Oregonian. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Your expert guide is Alan D. St. John, naturalist, photographer, native Oregonian, and lifetime dry-side explorer who shares it all, including — and this is generous indeed — some of his own little-known favorite places. Also a broad field guide to eastern Oregon, this treasure of a book shows the region's flora and fauna and dramatic geology in gorgeous photographs.

Rain, isn't that what Oregon is about? If that is your vision of a beautiful, green, friendly, but wet paradise, this book will be a must read. Amazingly Alan St. John has captured an entirely, for me, a "new" Oregon. It is like taking an adventurous trip to an area that previously was unknown. We are moving to Oregon soon and what excitement and anticipation we are experiencing looking forward to an area we hadn't even realized existed. And close enough to the refreshing rain and hustle bustle of the city if we go through withdraw.
