PNW Cheese cover
Tami Parr
's engaging history shows how regional cheesemaking found its way back to the farm. Pacific Northwest Cheese: A History begins with the first fur traders in the Pacific Northwest and ends with modern-day small farmers in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. Along the way, Parr tells some untold stories: about the cheese made along the Oregon Trail, of the region's thriving blue cheese and swiss cheese makers, and about the rise of goat's milk cheese.

Salmon cover

Jim Lichatowich's new book, Salmon, People, and Place: A Biologist's Search for Salmon Recovery, is "essential reading for anyone hoping to understand salmon in the Northwest," according to author John Larison. Drawing on more than forty years as a Pacific salmon researcher, manager, and scientific advisor, Lichatowich exposes the misconceptions underlying salmon recovery plans and presents a strategy to heal the catastrophic decline of salmon in the Northwest.

Collared cover

Aimee Lyn Eaton takes us from meeting rooms in the state capitol to ranching communities in Oregon's rural northeast corner in her forthright and balanced account of the passionate debate over the storied presence of wolves in the state. Collared: Politics and Personalities in Oregon's Wolf Country introduces readers to the biologists, ranchers, conservationists, state employees, and lawyers on the front lines of the controversy.

Our list this fall also includes:

• the story of a group of conscientious objectors on the Oregon Coast who, at CPS Camp #56, took art and peace from the margins to the mainstream

• a personal account of the history and healing of the Willamette River, once a rich network of channels and sloughs

• an environmental journalist's insightful and revealing history of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Act

• a new Horning Visiting Scholars publication that is part food history lesson, part editorial about our use of packaged foods, part call to arms—of the kitchen variety

• a collection of writings from geographers exploring collaborative work with Indigenous communities around the globe

• an invaluable collection of writings that reveal the day-to-day reality of implementing the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act
