Publisher Comments:

Few who visit today know the rich history behind Timberline Lodge and that it was a symbol of hope and purpose to an entire nation. Few also know that it was nearly derelict by the 1950s, nor do they know the story of Richard L. Kohnstamm , "the man who saved Timberline." And, while people continue to fall in love with Timberline Lodge, few know just how rich and interesting this collective love story is.

This exciting new edition of Timberline Lodge: A Love Story is an updated version of the regional best seller originally published in 1987. As editor for the new edition, Timberline’s Director of Public Affairs, Jon Tullis brought together new writers , local photographers, professional book designer Jami Spittler, and Portland book project advisor Dick Owsiany.

The collaboration resulted in a compelling book with an appealing and contemporary style. The new edition presents a dazzling collection of never before published photographs of the mountain and its historic lodge.

Features:

  • A beloved National Historic Landmark, Timberline Lodge welcomes two million visitors a year.
  • 400 artists and craftsmen took part in the construction.
  • The Diamond Jubilee Edition features a stunning collection of contemporary photos.
  • Includes never-before-published photo-graphs from private collections of Cindy Kassab, Gary Randall, Tom Iraci, and the Friends of Timberline archive of historical photographs.
  • All the original essays, including one from acclaimed writer Terrence O'Donnell.

Timberline Lodge: A Love Story is a celebration for families and friends, a reason to gather and share multi-generational memories, and to plan future visits to the Lodge. There are inspirational tales to be read in front of a crackling fire, and soaring photographs that will find you day dreaming of deep snow and picturesque mountain vistas. This beautiful new book will have broad appeal to Oregonians and visitors alike. The love story continues.

Synopsis:

Timberline Lodge: A Love Story, Diamond Jubilee Edition is an opportunity to share the history, legend, and romance in a collection of stories and a breathtaking visual keepsake.

Synopsis:

Internationally renowned Timberline Lodge is a thriving ski lodge near Portland, Oregon. The Lodge is one of the best-known WPA buildings, built and furnished entirely by the craftsmanship of 400 artisans of the northwest during the Depression Era. Few who visit today realize that it was nearly derelict by the 1950's nor do they know the story of Richard L. Kohnstamm, who saved Timberline. This book with its breath-taking photos and engaging essays celebrates the Lodge and the people who cared enough to build and then preserve the house that Oregon built on Mount Hood. The magnificent icon Timberline Lodge was dedicated by Franklin D. Roosevelt in September 1937 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977.
