Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

With concoctions like A Haunted Tour Guide to the Pacific Northwest and Weird Washington, co-authors Al Eufrasio and Jeff Davis have worked hard to disabuse readers of the mistaken notion that weirdness is an exclusively Eastern or Midwestern manifestation. Weird Oregon takes you down the backroads and in well-hidden basements of Beaver State strangeness, places where ghosts lurk and bizarre people congregate. Promise: One evening's read will change your entire view of the region.

    Disrespectful and Insensitive

    Although this book was meant to explore the "Weird" and unusual places in Oregon, I found one location that was called out and mocked by the authors to be very offensive. A friend of mine lost her brother to a heart condition at the age of 17, just a few years ago. His tombstone is located on the family's private property. Her brother loved to play basketball and has a picture of a basketball on his tombstone. The authors of this book somehow sought out this grave and decided to include a picture of the tombstone in their book with the inscription "Let the games begin". I find this to be completely unprofessional and disrespectful and am ashamed for these authors. The book, I thought, was meant to celebrate the uniqueness of the state of Oregon not mock family's tributes to their teenage son that passed away. I know I am only one person but I will never support these authors after their downright rude mockery and insensitivity to my friend and her family. Please take into consideration the disregard for a family's grieving of a loss of a son by the authors in this book before purchasing.
