Synopses & Reviews
Oregon has always been a place of hope and new beginning. This wide-ranging anthology of essays, speeches, and works of biography, history, and journalism records Oregonians' dreams, their fulfillments, and their frustrations.
Varieties of Hope illustrates the richness of the Oregon experience -- its challenges, rewards, and diversity. Chief Joseph, Sallie Tisdale, C.E.S. Wood, William O. Douglas, Ursula Le Guin, and 52 other writers explore subjects as diverse as the Pendleton Roundup, the Portland Trail Blazers, Mt. St. Helens, and the responses of Oregonians to their region and their world.
