Oregon was settled by walkers. Not only did North America's first tribes arrive here on foot via an Alaskan land bridge, but most of the Oregon Trail's pioneers walked -- hiking beside their covered wagons toward the dream they called Oregon.
Today the best way to explore the region's history is still by trail. On Tillamook Head, for example, you can retrace the Lewis and Clark expedition's steps through the rainforest, breathing the tangy salt air they breathed upon discovery of a sudden Pacific Ocean viewpoint. In Hells Canyon you can hike amid towering badlands on the actual route of Chief Joseph's tragic trail of tears. In Southern Oregon you can prowl through redwood groves to the bomb crater left by a daring Japanese attack in World War II. Gold mines, lookout towers, and wagon trails -- the story of Oregon is printed on the land for hikers to read. Oregon's grandest museum is the great outdoors. This book is your ticket of admission. -- Anonymous Reviewer

It's not an ordinary hiking guide - it's a tribute to Oregon's nature, culture and history.
If you like Sullivan's books - you will enjoy this one too. For the first choice I recommend Oregon Trips and Trails, as fantastic introduction to Sullivan/s series.
