From a massive urban forest to the tiniest brewpub, Portland offers a huge variety of entertainments within a surprisingly compact area. Organic coffeeshops line the streets at the foot of an extinct volcano, and independent bookstores nestle up against food-cart pods. Already famous for its great beer, the city has become a center for serious dining on a reasonable budget. And thanks to years of progressive urban planning, Portland's layout makes it a walker's nirvana. In Walking Portland, devoted local Becky Ohlsen guides you through the Rose City's many charms, from idyllic waterfront fountains to the more obscure and out-of-the-way pockets of cool. On each walk, you'll discover hidden gardens, historic landmarks, award-winning restaurants, old-school taverns, oddball shops, and edgy warehouse galleries in some of the Northwest's most exciting neighborhoods. You'll cross bridges and graveyards, wander a Smithsonian-honored boulevard, see experiments in urban renewal (some inspiring, some dubious) and be regaled with stories of the city's colorful past. Whether you're looking for a leisurely stroll full of shopping and snacks or a vigorous trek over tree-covered hillsides, grab this book, step outside and . . . walk Portland.

Walking with Ramona explores the streets, schools, characters, and neighborhoods of author Beverly Cleary’s Portland. With this newest and most unusual Portland guidebook, readers can walk the very sidewalks Beverly walked and climb the very school steps that Beverly climbed. You'll see the grocery parking lot where Ramona got stuck in the mud, the park lawn where Henry Huggins hunted nightcrawlers, and the real Portland street that became Klickitat Street, their fictional home. Beverly Cleary’s Portland was much different than the Portlandia of today. Walking with Ramona brings to life what that 1920s and 1930s Portland was like for the “girl from Yamhill” who went on to become an internationally beloved author. Characters like Ramona and Beezus, Henry and Ribsy, and Ellen and Austine come to life on this hour-long walking route through the Northeast Portland neighborhood where Beverly grew up. An almost 3-mile walk around Northeast Portland, plus other Oregon destinations.

"Portland's Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) was designed to hold the bursting metropolitan area in check while protecting Willamette Valley orchards and fields from sprawling suburbia. David Oates traveled the 260-mile boundary that defines Portland to discover how the UGB has contributed to that success. City Limits is his record of the journey." "From conversations with the people he encounters on his walks, Oates comes to view the UGB as a long-running experiment in community control over development. But in recent years, the growth boundary has come under fire from developers, property rights advocates, and other critics. Just after Oates completed his walks, a statewide vote gutted Oregon's land use laws." "Oates explores issues of conformity and conflict on the UGB in the company of various individuals he sometimes invites along for the day's walk - artists, writers, urban planners, environmentalists, developers, a politician, a wine grape grower. Reflecting Oates's belief in the power of community and collaboration, many of their thoughts and writings about the experience are included in the book."--BOOK JACKET.

FICTION Take a visionary walk through the cosmos right here on the Earth What if you woke up one morning and realized you are the cosmos, all the heavenly realms and gods, and a refl ection of God Himself/Herself? Th at you and the Earth have the same structures of consciousness, are made virtually the same? Walking in Albion is an amusing, passionate fi rst-person answer to that. It chronicles interactions with the Earth through its sacred sites in a style full of jokes and visions, whinges and epiphanies. Leviton reports life on the path of the Christed Grail Knight in search of a cosmic spirit called Albion, the cosmos in a giant human form, the soul of the planet. Albion is a picture map of Creation, full of lights and palaces and the memories of humanity on Earth since the beginning. Join Leviton in an odyssey of meditation and visionary experience from sites in Norway, France, England, and Scotland to America, Mexico, and Tahiti. Oh yes, he travels with plenty of sidekicks, jokers, and wellwishers, especially angels. Want a freshly conceived meditative-spiritual experience that includes the Earth as a prime recipient of your contacts and changes? Walking in Albion is an unusual and original approach to the Mysteries of human and Earth, a fresh, bold way of regarding the authentic Christ, not as dogma but experience— yours—in the theater of the Earth. Plus guidelines to relate eff ectively with the geomantic landscape, and have fun and insight doing it, as you contribute to the Earth’s well-being starting today and begin
