New & Endangered Oregon Wilderness Hikes
A slide show presentation by
William L. Sullivan
Join author William L. Sullivan for a slide show celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act. We’ll visit hiking trails in spectacular areas protected during each decade from the 1960s to the present. But more than half of Oregon’s roadless land is still unprotected, so Sullivan goes on to show us interesting hikes in endangered areas -- from the desert to the rainforest. Expect tales of history, geology, and wildlife along the way.
Sullivan has hiked every trail he could find in the state for his popular “100 Hikes” guidebooks, a series he updates continually. His latest book, however, “The Oregon Variations,” is a collection of short stories, with one story set in every county in the state. He has also written four novels and many nonfiction books about Oregon, including “Hiking Oregon’s History” and “The Case of D. B. Cooper’s Parachute.” His journal of a 1000-mile hike across Oregon, “Listening for Coyote,” was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of Oregon’s “100 Books,” the 100 most significant books in the state’s history.
