Eastern Oregon is less well known than the West of that state.  The two "sides" of Oregon differ dramatically in climate and geography.  But it is the people and their stories that set the east apart and which take center stage in this, another of veteran author Ralph Friedman's odes to Oregon.

About the author (1993)

A Chicagoan by birth, Ralph Friedman first saw Oregon at the age of seventeen after hitchhiking and riding boxcars across the country. He has written on every state and continent except Antarctica - but Oregon is his major interest.
