Join us for a special free author event April 13 at 7 p.m. in Heron Hall with Daniel Mathews on the natural history of the Pacific Northwest.
For his presentation, Mathews will give us an overview of a work that describes more than 950 species of plants, animals, and mushrooms with helpful keys for easy identification. This is an engagingly written, portable history of the Cascade area identifying the flora, fauna, and geology of the region. It also includes information about the potential impact of climate change on the landscape. With both a scientist’s eye for detail and organization, and a novelist’s ear for the compelling stories of the region's plants, animals, and people, Mathews will bring the mountains alive. This is the essential trailside reference for naturalists, hikers, and campers.
Portland resident Daniel Mathews has written several wonderful books on natural history topics in the Pacific Northwest, but is probably best known for the invaluable Cascade-Olympic Natural History. That book was sadly out of print for many years, but lives anew with a new title in this greatly expanded and revised edition. Lavishly illustrated with over 800 color photographs, as well as line drawings and maps, this comprehensive guide to the bio-region covers the Coastal and Cascade Mountain Ranges, as well as the Olympic Mountains and Coast Mountains of southern British Columbia. A book signing will follow after the presentation.
