Item Description...
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

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Knowledgeable Author - Out Of Date Material  Jan 4, 2001
I have used the author's guide to Coastal California as well. Both of these are pretty good books. This author truly knows these regions, gives good advise and accurate descriptions. The problem is that it needs to be updated. The prices for the hotels are grossly inaccurate and many of the recommended restaurants have long gone out of business.

Additionally, there is an error in the book. There are detailed directions to get from Portland to the Columbia Gorge Scenic Hywy. and they are WRONG!

These detractors aside, this is a very well laid out and comprehensive book. When you read the book you will get a very good sense of what to expect. There is also some neat historical info. heading each region's sections. That is a nice way to introduce the next area. The maps are great and the tours are fun. The gift of this book and the other I mentioned by Dorper is that I think he really knows the area. It is not a quick or glossy overview of the area, but more of a feel of what a person who has lived and loved that place would tell you about it. It also benefits from the author's gifted and colorful writing style... never dry! The pictures are spectacular and do the area justice. A very good guide and a very beautiful place to visit.
