OSU Press Celebrates Fifty with a Free Sampler

October 26, 2011

cover of sampler We're marking a big birthday this year—have you heard? Oregon State University Press is 50! We've published close to five hundred books—books that "celebrate, evaluate, invent, and illuminate the Oregon condition."

To say thank you, we want to share a gift with you, our readers and friends.

We've created a sampler, a reflection of the inspiring and noteworthy books that OSU Press has been privileged to publish over the years. And we're making it freely available on our website and through our collection on the ScholarsArchive@OSU open access digital repository.

In these pages, you'll travel from the nocturnal streets of Portland to a Columbia River island, from a homestead on the southern slope of Steens Mountain to the fictional Mink River on the Oregon Coast. You'll read stories from the only individual to win two unshared Nobel Prizes, from the first African American woman to be elected to the Oregon State Senate, and from outstanding scholars, journalists, and naturalists.

We invite you to download Telling Oregon's Stories, and to share it widely. We hope you'll be as delighted with this collection of astonishing and remarkable voices from the Northwest as we are.
