Description

"For the past twenty years Ron Strickland, oral historian and hiker extraordinaire, has been travelling the dramatic seacoasts, snow-capped Cascades, and lush Olympic Rain Forest of Washington State. Canvassing the length and breadth of the land, he has assembled the most captivating stories in a broad and exciting collection of Washington folklife that captures the independent and idiosyncratic spirit of the people from tough oldtimers to contemporary New Agers.
