This field guide is a deeply informative and wildly exuberant visual and literary romp through one of the most spectacular regions of the world--a varied chorus of voices and visual talents, all celebrating the animals and plants of the great Pacific Northwest.--Ray Troll, Artist and Co-author of Cruisin' the Fossil Coastline
Have you ever been so filled up with the wonder of a place that it wants to spill out as a song? Well, here is the songbook. I imagine walking through a forest and pausing to read these illuminating pages aloud to a listening cedar or a dipper. There are field guides that help us to see, and to name, and to know; Cascadia Field Guide does all of that and more. This is a guide to relationship, a gift in reciprocity for the gifts of the land.--Robin Wall Kimmerer, Author of Braiding Sweetgrass
The rich array of writers and artists in Cascadia Field Guide takes us by verse and image through one of the most diverse eco-regions in North America.

More than a collection, it is an essential compendium to the Pacific Northwest; a 'feel guide' to an extraordinary place.--J. Drew Lanham, Author of The Home Place and Sparrow Envy
This beautiful choral celebration of entanglement ongoing and evermore is amazing, a wonder, a gratitude.--Ross Gay, Author of Inciting Joy
