Rivers of Oregon Talk
The Nature Store is delighted to welcome back author and photographer Tim Palmer for a free presentation of his gorgeous new book, Rivers of Oregon on Thursday, November 10 at 7 p.m. in Heron Hall. Please join us for a celebration of the wet and wild. Contact the Nature Store at (503) 292-9453 if you have questions or wish to reserve copy of the book.
Showcasing the beauty, the life, and the magic of Oregon's remarkable array of waterways, Rivers of Oregon (Oregon State University Press, $40.00) captures the intrinsic qualities of the state's rivers with exquisite images and an illuminating text. With spectacular photos from all across the state, Tim will take you on a river tour that will change the way you think about water flowing across our land.
Tim Palmer has written over 20 books about rivers, the American landscape, conservation and adventure travel. His recent Field Guide to Oregon Rivers was a bestseller in the Nature Store in 2014. A Port Orford resident, he was named one of the 10 greatest river conservationists of our time by Paddler magazine.
"Tim Palmer's gorgeous new Rivers of Oregon makes me want to live forever, so that I can float every riffle and eddy of every stream. His photographs are spectacular, his prose enticing, his love for the rivers intense. And the rivers themselves? Deep and beautiful and redeeming, the source of life itself." —Kathleen Dean Moore, author of Great Tide Rising
