An ode to the NW

This book offers the reader a comprehensive window into the Pacific Northwest. Egan opens the blinds to the harsh reality of the history of the region while contrasting it with remarkable accounts of the natural beauty he encounters on his travels. As a resident of these parts, it’s harrowing to re-hear tales of murder, violence, and destruction blended into the soil of my natural backyard. That said, I really enjoyed the book and appreciated Egan’s ability to blend personal experience with historical insights as he magnificently portrays sights, sounds, and emotions through his adventures in Washington, Canada, and Oregon.

Best naturalist writer of ou generation

Drawing on his profound knowledge of the history of the northwest Egan writes of the country through the eyes of a lover. Spectacular descriptions, edgy history alive with the personalities who built and destroyed and are redefing the northwest. Best book I've read this year!
