A cheesy nineties cover should not distract you from Sallie Tisdale's ode to the Northwest and the process of moving westward ('twould be a wildish thing...). Her prose is by turns functional, factual and pure poetry.

It made me re-realize my gratitude at being here. Also only clarified the point that only idiots climb mountains like Mt Ranier. Because they die.

When I was in the Portland library fishing for books on native amphibians and reptiles, I happened across this one. The title summed up my latest life theme and so far seems a good introduction to regional history in the Pacific Northwest.
