WestWinds Press is proud to bring back into print this classic history of the Pacific Northwest from native daughter Nancy Wilson Ross. Reading the book is like opening a time capsule to Oregon and Washington as they were from the Oregon Trail days through the 1930s. FARTHEST REACH is an engaging, affectionate account of the remote and mysterious Pacific Northwest and a celebration of its people--the loggers, fishermen, cowboys, Native Americans, and eccentrics; its big cities and rural towns, and its spectacular natural beauty, from the rugged coast to the wild rivers, the snowcapped mountains to the high desert.
