    One thought on “Hiking Oregon's History”

    1. We always take a photocopy of the pages for the hike we're on with us when we hike from this book -- when we get to our final destination, it's so fun to read all the history that happened in the place where you are. I wish he'd write a series just of this book!!

    2. Mark read this aloud to me bit by bit over the last 6 months. What a wonderful experience! We learned so much about Oregon along the way and we have a list of places we hope to see in person. Several parts made us laugh, a few parts had us saying "What???" and Sullivan's description of the Nez Perce fleeing their homeland broke our hearts into shattered pieces. Highly - and I mean HIGHLY - recommend this book for anyone who lives in or just loves Oregon.

    3. Oregon was settled by walkers – following the Oregon Trail by walking or hiking beside their covered wagons toward the dream they called Oregon. Today the best way to discover Oregon's grandest museum is through the outdoors.Recounted in a fresh style that's fun for armchair travelers and hikers alike, "Hiking Oregon's History" by William L. Sullivan tells the stories behind 56 of the state's most scenic historic sites. Offered in guidebook form, this book follows such trails as the Lewis and [...]

    4. Quite a historical tour of Oregon's outdoors. 56 of the state's sites are described, including lighthouses and gold mines. With many legends, wild stories, and scandals thrown into the mix!I especially enjoyed the description of Crater Lake, which I finally got to visit in 2011. The Klamath tribe's legend of its formation is given a good telling. Quite a lot of info about Wizard Island that rises out of the lake, and makes an interesting boat trip destination.The history of Timberline Lodge, whi [...]

    5. The stories are fascinating. It is much more interesting reading about the places where I've actually been than about places with which I'm unfamiliar. And it might have made a little more sense to have had the excerpts in order by location rather than jumping around the state. But the history is intriguing and often tragic. A good read, but probably even better to have on hand if you're actually on vacation, on site.

    6. this book rocks recent years i've become a histoty buff, it just so happens i now live in the area of "final frontier" NW and this book is way to awesome to NOT have on my bookshelf. I'd love to document video of this places for OPB, if it hasn't been done already.

    7. Love this book. It was required reading in my PNW history class, now I keep it in my car for road trip references.
