    Peter Turchi: IMG Writing as Puzzle

Publisher Comments:

From a ski adventure at Crater Lake to a wildflower hike in the Columbia Gorge and a hidden hot springs in the desert, here are 62 favorite stories about places and people in Oregon’s outdoors, by the state’s foremost outdoor author, William L. Sullivan.

For armchair travelers and adventurers alike, the book includes boxed inserts with trip details, as well as color-coded headings recommending the best month to visit each of these Oregon favorites.

About the Author

A fifth-generation Oregonian, Sullivan has written seven books about Oregon’s outdoors, as well as two books on Oregon history, two adventure memoirs, and three novels. His journal, Listening for Coyote was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of the 100 most significant books in the state's history.

geoff.wichert, July 30, 2011 (view all comments by geoff.wichert)
this sort of thing can be useful if done well, and only time will tell if Sullivan has . . . BUT here's the thing that bothers me. We humans have a knack for saying "This place is beautiful! Let's move here and spoil it." Portland between 1980 and 2000 was a case in point. So at the least ironic, books like this enrich one man's career while increasing the load of visitors on a place that may not be able to sustain it. On the ironic side, if everyone follows the writer's advice on when it's best to visit, those people -- who presumably could have found it on their own if they'd been looking -- will find themselves on the natural equivalent of the freeway at rush hour. So my suggestion is buy this book, read this book, get inspired by this book, but don't follow this books directions. Go find your own place. It will be as spectacular as Multnomah Falls, but without the intrusive fences and acres of chain-link avalanche fenders. And the crowds.
