Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ralph Friedman was once asked if he had seen much of Oregon. "Hey," he replied. "My dog has been in every county."

Using his travels and experience to writing advantage, Ralph Friedman has written ten complete books and parts of forty others — primarily on Oregon. His articles on Oregon have appeared in newspapers and magazines across the country. For ten years, he led a travel class, "Oregon for the Curious," for the Portland Community College. He taught writing and folklore for Portland State University and Portland Community College for over fifteen years.

A Chicagoan by birth, Ralph Friedman first saw Oregon at the age of seventeen after hitchhiking and riding boxcars across the country. He has written on every state and continent except Antarctica — but Oregon is his major interest.

Book News Annotation:

The peripatetic Friedman is one of Oregon's great resources, and this, his magnum opus, is probably the most exhaustive and engaging travel guide to the region ever produced. It is strong on history, literature, mythology, folklore, anecdotal material and personal profiles, all oriented to specific places and to the state as a whole. Just one particularly rewarding feature is the regular contrasting of towns and hamlets in the year 1915 to the contemporary setting.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press

This is the definitive guide for things to see and to do in western Oregon. This volume is packed with historical details, folklore, anecdotes, geology, fishing, flora, fauna, biography, hiking trails, and a good deal more. These elements are combined with photos of thousands of off-the-beaten-path finds.
