Just had a copy sent International that makes the price $50...but this book is worth every penny and more. Buy it, give it away, and let everyone who reads know about it!!! I'm a Portland native and will be in town right after Christmas and I can hardly wait to hit the streets with "City" in my hands. Simply marvelous!

i completely agree with charisse. this book is the book that will not just sit at the coffee table, but will become a destination guide for those who love this city as much as the next person on the max. i have lived and explored portland for years, and this book inspired me to do it even more.

I love this book. I can feel the enthusiasm of the author's love for the city of Portland and his love for books. There's nothing like a book that's written by an author with sincerity for the material. It's right on. I'm recommending this book to so many people, because it makes that PERFECT gift for those who you know you're supposed to buy gifts for but you don't know what to get. This is that gift. It's well-researched and thorough, and at the same time it touches your heart to the core, especially if you and others really love Portland, books, bookstores, libraries, and places to read that are so cool that you'll look a million times Portland-native after reading it.
