Editorial Reviews

Doug Lorain's wife has been a "wilderness widow" ever since family moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1969. It's not that Doug doesn't love his spouse dearly; he's just obsessed with hitting the trails. Over the years, he's logged more than 30,000 trail miles in the region, making him an ideal candidate for regional authorship. With more than a dozen books under his belt, he's mastered the art of bundling all the info that readers need. In One Night Wilderness: Portland, this National Outdoor Book Award–winning author pinpoints dozens of beguiling backcountry getaways within a three-hour drive from Oregon's most populous city.
