Product Description

What’s the association between Ken Kesey and Nancy’s Yogurt? What about the contrast between a hoedad and a webfoot? What was the fate of the Pixie Kitchen and the vanished Lambert Gardens?

The Oregon Companion is an A–Z handbook of more than 1000 individuals, spots, and things. From Abernethy and beaver cash to houseboats, railways, and the Zigzag River, a valiant open student of history isolates reality from fiction ― with his comical inclination in place. Sections incorporate towns and urban areas, districts, streams, lakes, and mountains; individuals who have left a blemish on Oregon; commercial enterprises, items, harvests, and characteristic assets. Incorporates more than 160 verifiable high contrast photographs. This enlivening and delightfully careful summary is a fundamental reference for anybody inquisitive about Oregon.
