9780874223323: Remote Wonders: An Explorer's Guide to Southeast Oregon

At first, the basalt rims, high cold deserts, dry lakes, and vast expanses of grass and sage seem to be a barren realm. In fact, petite flowers bloom on rock shelves. Tiny organisms thrive in hot springs and salt water. Unique soil collects and retains water, allowing ancient pine stands to survive. Pikas build miniature grass haystacks to store winter food. Petroglyphs and remnants of ranches, mills, and mines provide evidence of human history. Indeed, remote southeast Oregon is a rich wonderland of mountains, forests, creatures, and more--one well worth exploring. Born and raised in Oregon's Outback, the author's affection for the region shines through. He designed "Remote Wonders" as a road tour guide, and his essays and numerous photos highlight notable natural and historical features. Supplemental information includes side trip and other travel recommendations, and a pull-out map is keyed to selected sites

About the Author:

Melvin R. Adams was born and raised in the small town of Lakeview in the desert of eastern Oregon. His childhood revolved around the outdoors: hunting, fishing, camping, and backpacking. While earning a bachelor's degree in general science at Oregon State University, he returned to eastern Oregon each summer to survey roads in the Fremont National Forest. His experiences in the desert instilled in him a love for and deep interest in the natural and human history of the region. After earning a master's degree with dual majors in biology and geology from the University of North Dakota, Adams began a career as a science teacher, first in Oregon then in California. He later returned to college to study environmental engineering, prompted in part by his growing concern for the environment of the West; afterward, he took a position as an engineer at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in the Washington desert. He previously published "Netting the Sun" with Washington State University Press.
