Overview

This classic adventure memoir of a 65-day backpacking trek across Oregon's wilderness includes encounters with blizzards, poisonous mushrooms,and bears, but Sullivan spices his journal with the observations of a talented naturalist, including notes on history and geology, demonstrations of suvival skills, and stories of the unforgettable people he met. These last include a political scientist who leaves his classrooms to protect Bald Mountain from the Forest Service, a camouflaged elk hunter who hopes to be reincarnated as a stag elk, and an ancient widow who lives alone in a remote gold-mining cabin.
What these people share, and what this book illustrates, is a deep connection to the wilderness, that place we must preserve where humans still do not control things. Written in a soft-spoken but powerful style, Sullivan's book demonstrates with living examples just why we are right to work to save such places.

Meet the Author

William L. Sullivan is the author of a dozen nonfiction books about Oregon and four novels, as well as monthly outdoor columns for the Eugene Register-Guard and Salem Statesman-Journal. A fifth-generation Oregonian, he received his English degree at Cornell University, studied linguistics at Germany’s Heidelberg University, and completed an M.A. in German at the University of Oregon.

Sullivan’s hobbies include backcountry ski touring, playing the pipe organ, and promoting libraries. He and his wife Janell Sorensen live in Eugene but spend summers without roads or electricity in a log cabin they built by hand along a wilderness river in Oregon’s Coast Range. Sullivan’s memoir of his adventures at that cabin retreat is entitled Cabin Fever: Notes From a Part-Time Pioneer. A complete list of Sullivan’s books and speaking engagements is available at www.oregonhiking.com.
