BOOK: Ancient Places: People and Landscape in the Emerging Northwest

Readers of this blog might find interesting this new book from Pacific Northwest author Jack Nisbet, who has written about the nature of the region and naturalist David Douglas:

Jack Nisbet, Ancient Places: People and Landscape in the Emerging Northwest (Seattle: Sasquatch Books, 2015, 256 pp.)

Publisher’s description These are the genesis stories of a region. In Ancient Places, Jack Nisbet uncovers touchstones across the Pacific Northwest that reveal the symbiotic relationship of people and place in this corner of the world. From rural Oregon, where a controversy brewed over the provenance and ownership of a meteor, to the great floods 15,000 years ago that shaped what is now Washington, Oregon, and Idaho, this is a compelling collection of stories about the natural and human history of our region.
