Publisher Comments:

The Willamette River flows for nearly 200 miles, through deep forests, green valleys, and past cities — Eugene, Springfield, Corvallis, Albany, Salem, Keizer, Newberg, Oregon City, and Portland.

Yet it is a river hiding in plain sight: until now, there has been no comprehensive guide to the Willamette.

Following the river downstream from its tributaries through its vast valleys and to the tidal flats beyond Portland, The Willamette River Field Guide is the story of Oregon's earliest inhabitants,

the connection between the river and the towns along its banks, the wildlife it supports, and the effects of alterations to its geography and ecology. Includes tips for more than a dozen riverside visits and trips. Twelve maps cover each segment of the river. Beautiful new color photographs and rare historical photos help tell the story.

Travis Williams knows the river intimately and cares about it passionately. Whether you take in the views from land or water, or just dip into this fascinating guide from home, after reading this book you will know the Willamette River as you never have before.

James Thomas, January 28, 2013 (view all comments by James Thomas)
This is a really nice book whether you want to simply Learn about the Willamette River, or get out on, or along the River and explore it. The maps are a nice scale, and the descriptions of where to go are accurate.

It seems the author really knows the issues surrounding the river, from a history of dirty water, to the current effort to clean up the polluted sediments of Portland Harbor. I really enjoyed this book, as well as the photography, and will use it when I travel down the Willamette Valley, or take in segments of the river near Portland. Excellent!
