Editorial Reviews

About the Author

The author of a dozen books about Oregon, William L. Sullivan has hiked virtually every trail in the state. A fifth-generation Oregonian, he has written Hiking Oregon's History and Oregon's Greatest Natural Disasters. He lives in Eugene, but spends summers in a wilderness log cabin he built by hand -- a project described in his memoir Cabin Fever. His book Listening for Coyote was selected one of Oregon's 100 Books.

More About the Author

The author of three novels and a dozen nonfiction books, Sullivan grew up in Salem, Oregon. He completed his B.A. degree in English at Cornell University under Alison Lurie, studied linguistics at Germany's Heidelberg University, and earned an M.A. in German at the University of Oregon. He reads in a dozen languages, plays the pipe organ, and enjoys backcountry ski expeditions.
Sullivan is known in the American West as the author who backpacked more than a thousand miles across Oregon's wilderness in 1985. His journal of that adventure, "Listening for Coyote," has since been chosen one of Oregon's "100 Books," the most significant books in state history.
In summer he writes at the log cabin that he and his wife Janell Sorensen built by hand in the wilds of Oregon's Coast Range, more than a mile from roads, electricity, and telephones. The rest of the year they live in Eugene, Oregon, where he volunteers to promote libraries and literature.
A list of Sullivan's books, speaking engagements, and favorite adventures is at www.oregonhiking.com .

We had two weeks vacation in Oregon and wanted to see the best, wanted to hike and stay at beautiful places. This guide book is just really good organized, has lots of information and tons of nice hikes. We enjoyed every hike and think the maps were really good. We didn't need to buy additional maps. The hikes were beautiful and the places we got to see amazing. Would always recommend it if you have not much time, but want to get a good impression of Oregon. And we will definitely be back to see all the other places from the book we had no time to see anymore. I also loved having some pictures in there, so decisions were easier to make.

Another quality, well researched outdoor guide by Sullivan. Highly Recommend. It is obvious that the author has personally been to each of the locations in the book.

When me and my wife moved to OR two years ago, we put everything we owned in a storage unit, packed up the camper van, and drove down to the OR/CA border. This began one of the greatest hiking/camping excursions of my life. We had bought several OR hiking guides from a few different authors in order to have good variety. One of these were from Sullivan. His guide won among the three we had purchased. The degree of detail regarding driving and hiking directions proved that he was more than just a naturalists writing hiking guides for the greater PNW. He is an Oregonian and he gets out and hikes these trails more than any of us. We ended up buying three more hiking guides of his that focus on different parts of the state. These guides are THE go to for us on our weekends when we need a new area to explore I highly recommend them. Keep in mind that OR woods are extremely dense and aren't always well traveled. Get a map, a GPS, and always let someone know where you are going and when you will be back. Trustworthy friends and family are good for this, but if you get out as much as I do you may feel like you are a burden to them. Thats why I started homesafeoutdoors.com, a company that can keep track of thousands of itineraries and return times simultaneously. If you don't make it back by your return time, we call your emergency contacts and initiate a search and rescue operation.
