Edge of Awe

Experiences of the Malheur-Steens Country

Illustrated by Ursula K. LeGuin; Foreword by William Kittredge; Edited by Alan L. Contreras
Oregon State University Press

With a foreword by William Kittredge and line drawings by Ursula K. LeGuin, this literary anthology gathers together personal impressions of the Malheur-Steens region of Oregon, known for its birding opportunities, its natural beauty and remoteness, and, more recently, for the 2016 armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Contributors include biologists, students, tourists, birders, local residents, and native Paiute, thus reflecting the perspectives of visitors, original inhabitants, and current residents. Anyone who has visited the area or plans to do so, and anyone with an interest in the region, will find inspiration in this literary companion.

Alan L. Contreras is an avid birder, past president of the Oregon Field Ornithologists, and has written and edited several books on Oregon, including Birds of Oregon. He has visited the Malheur-Steens area countless times.
