Outline ReviewThere are many guides to the Pacific Northwest, but few with this depth. John Doerper knows the region well and manages to weave in apple, cheese, and oyster tours of Washington; a guide to Northwest wineries; literary and historical extracts; as well as topical essays on subjects ranging from potlatch giveaways to Columbia River explorations to the cuisine of the West.
Doerper also provides pragmatic travel details--with transportation, accommodation, and restaurant specifics--though the focus of this guide is city and regional histories, sightseeing particulars, and an abundance of superior-quality maps. It also includes a good number of black-and-white historic reprints, courtesy of Seattle's Museum of History and Industry, and exceptional color photographs that capture the flavor and character of the various districts and neighborhoods in the Northwest--from the vineyards of Zillah to mossy trails in Olympic National Park to Port Townsend's harbor views. A high-caliber book by individuals who know, live in, and care about the region, Pacific Northwest is rich with enough inspiration for residents and visitors alike. --Stephanie Gold
