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.
