Editorial Reviews

Portland Monthly
"Oregon's Dry Side is neither an insider's travel guide, nor an informative natural history, nor an engaging portrait of the contemporary culture and economic landscape in cetral and eastern Oregon: It's all of the above. From a primer on plate tectonics to tips on family-friendly hikes in the central Cascades, this book covers everything you need to know to go native in what is colloquially referred to as Oregon's "high desert" (and you'll even learn why this label is technically innacurate)."
—Camela Raymond, Portland Monthly
La Grande Observer
"Oregon's Dry Side is a labor of Stetson spirit and tumbleweed love...it captures the sage-scented lifestyle, the granite and ice, the tule dingles, the pine-scented paradises, and sense of spaciousness so many of us treasure."
—Jeff Petersen, La Grande Observer
Pacific Northwest Quarterly
“The book is beautifully illustrated with striking photographs and historical reproductions, and St. John’s description of Oregon’s dry landscapes is fascinating.”
