Notable Reviews

“The book is rigorously researched and peppered with fascinating tidbits of historical and geographical information; in one chapter, “The Curious Myth of Douglas Island,” the author muses on the nature of storytelling before moving on to a very thorough investigation of the history of the island’s name... The Woods describes an experience of the West Coast with honesty and earnestness that counterbalances idealized odes to the region."
