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.
