Eastern Oregon is less well known than the West of that state. The two "sides" of Oregon differ dramatically in climate and geography. But it is the people and their stories that set the east apart and which take center stage in this, another of veteran author Ralph Friedman's odes to Oregon.
"No one knows Oregon like Ralph Friedman, but he gives you the chance in his latest offering of the unknown and the obscure, In Search of Western Oregon."—Gene Barton, Scene, The Bulletin Gene Barton
"Someone, contemplating a trip through Oregon should, by all means, carry this book. But for those, who elect to stay home, Friedman's book is of interest also for the book comes close to being a state encyclopedia."—Charles K. Graydon, Nevada County Historical Society Bulletin Charles K. Graydon
"A deeper dimension . . ." said Ralph Friedman when talking about his latest (and possibly greatest) book, The Other Side of Oregon. This volume is filled with stories about people and places that make the state special, spiced with philosophical tidbits from the author.
