Cascadia Field Guide brings together art, poetry, and stories holding scientific, sensory, and cultural knowledge to celebrate and illuminate Cascadia, the diverse ecoregion stretching from Alaska’s Prince William Sound to Northern California and from the Pacific Coast to the Continental Divide.
This unique book contains 13 communities (from Tidewater Glacier to Shrub-Steppe) and 128 beings (from Geoduck to Cassia Crossbill), offering any reader, local or visitor, a new way of connecting – with heart and mind and body – to place.
“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… A gift in reciprocity for the gifts of the land.” – Robin Wall Kimmerer
“A deeply informative and wildly exuberant visual and literary romp.” – Ray Troll
“Amazing, a wonder, a gratitude.” – Ross Gay
“An essential compendium… a ‘feel guide’ to an extraordinary place.” – J. Drew Lanham
