A Great Book for an Amazing PlaceAfter reading this very well done book I wanted to go spend time in Wallula Gap. I wanted to meet the critters and see the geology that created this huge place. What an outstanding book full of wonderful photos and superbly designed pages. This book causes you to want more, to go there and spend a warm summer evening in the gap. Thank you to Dr. Carson and the four other writers that created a masterwork.
At Last an Outstanding Book on Wallula GapI read it and was very impressed with the depth of knowledge these authors have on this very wild desert area. I learned a lot about this very historic spot. Well worth a sit down read. This is a well researched manuscript that allowed the production of a very readable book. The photographs are amazing and worth the price of this book alone. There are many heretofore unpublished historic photos and four unpublished paintings by Dave Manual. This book is a must for anyone that enjoys Pacific Northwest history, both human and natural history. Time is passing so get a copy while they last. [by Edward Dees]
Rock Solid Book Flooded With Great InformationThis book is a delight to read. It covers so many topics in a fashion that keeps you interested and invested in the story that covers this seldom written on area here in the Pacific Northwest. This beautiful book covers geology, biology, early native history, the history of the first railroad in the northwest, Fort Nez Perce, Fort Walla Walla and the how and why things are the way they are today. All shaped by the mighty Columbia River at Wallula Gap. Great read and well worth anyones time.
Where the Great River Bends is Well Worth itThis is an outstanding book that covers the whole history of Wallula Gap. This book is so well illustrated and the B & W historic photos are superb as are the contemporary color images. This well designed book is eye catching and the internal text is very well done and is very informative. This is a book about the west by folks that live in the west. Subjects covered are Geology, Biology (natural history of the region), Euro-American History, Native American History, 20th Century history of the inland Northwest. This book is worth every cent.
