    One thought on “Oregon's Wilderness Areas: The Complete Guide”

    1. Lovely photos, lots of good information. But Oregon's wilderness is huge, and the scope of this book such that I didn't get the exhaustive information I wanted. I wanted way more detail than I got here. To be fair, there are lots of books on smaller areas- and this book certainly helped me narrow my focus and track down the books that will help me.
