"...a tour-de-force in cartography and design. Packed with fascinating information, it's also a feast for the eye.." -- Allen Carroll, Chief Cartographer National Geographic Society

“The best book on Oregon . . . it's a wonderfully accessible look at Oregon’s human, economic and physical geography.” -- Jonathan Nicholas, columnist The Oregonian, Portland October, 2001

Loy and Allen's ATLAS OF OREGON certainly is the benchmark to which all others must aspire. The hardcover edition is not inexpensive, but the sample pages displayed convinced me to take a chance, and was I glad that I did! The day I received it, I was mesmerized for hours. The quality and colors of the graphics, the exhaustive research and attention to detail were incredible. The charts, graphs, etc. are all easy to read. Every possible aspect of Oregon is covered. I believe a person could make an intelligent decision as to exactly where to live without even visiting the state! You feel you are there. Bravo!

Loy & Allan build upon previous atlas efforts (OR 1976, CA 1979) and make use of technology and greater knowledge to produce excellent, useful maps and charts. Pre-1865 (inch-pound) measuring units are used instead of U.S. (SI) units as used in the 1976 edition (for example, temperatures are in °F not °C). Historic growth and immigration maps, education (K-12, university and school districts), demographics and future temperature and precipitation scenarios make this a handy "big picture" reference.
Economic, water and transportation and other "sheds" enable a you to obtain a good understanding of past, current and future trends. Obtain the Atlas and CD - you will use them both for a long time.

This book is a bargain. The wealth of information collected in one place is amazing. I consider this book the ultimate collection of interesting data on the state of Oregon. Those with children in Oregon should consider this a "must buy" for their children's education.

Highly detailed information about each individual city in Oregon. Not quite as much information about Oregon as a whole state as I would have liked. But then again, if Thomas Jefferson had his way, the States would have been divvied up a little differently anyway.

There's so much great info in this book that it's hard to find what you want. Especially if you're just looking for something simple, like "where's Sumpter relative to Baker City?"

It's kind of a must-have reference guide. But I don't use it as much as I should, because I always know I'll be 10 minutes trying to figure out how to navigate to what I need.
