"A concise, accurate, thorough and downright beautiful guide to an area that is underappreciated by those who haven't taken the time to look around them. This little book is so well written, so well organized, so well illustrated, that readers can learn to love the beauty and value of the Tualatin just by reading the book. So think of the adventures each of its sections can take you on! Buy this amazing book and let it spark a summer of outdoor discoveries."

—Dan Hays, Statesman Journal
