Captivating read! I read it first while still a student in college, right after it was originally published...and it inspired me to travel to the Pacific Northwest to see some of the places he wrote of.

Across Time and Terrain in the Pacific Northwest is exactly what this book is about. I found the history and issues discussed fascinating. I could relate personally to many of the stories. I am humbled and saddened to see/hear/read how we have taken advantage of, damaged, or destroyed, so many irreplaceable natural resources.

Egan does very well at decribing the NW and what it was like during the early 19th century. he also has a lot of facts stuffed into the chapters which can make it a bit wordy. when i first picked up the book i wondered what he ment by 'the good rain', now i know.
