About the book:

Many Brits, when visiting the US, choose New York or Los Angeles as their destinations, but as The Rough Guide to Oregon & Washington proves, there are other breathtaking destinations in this country built on the grandest of scales. With this guide in ones pocket, its possible to explore every inch of Oregon and Washington, using the most utilitarian maps in any series of guides. These regions, apart from their awe-inspiring scenery, are celebrated for everything from hiking and microbreweries to a thriving music scene, and all such matters are treated authoritatively here.

The mighty Columbia River begins in Canada at the Rocky Mountains and takes a winding path through eastern Washington before making its way to the Pacific. Along this route is the astonishing Columbia River Gorge, and a section here on this area is extremely useful -- and inspiring. But not everything in the regions discussed here is merely scenic: a prominent relic of the World's Fair is the Space Needle with a shaft rising 605 feet and supporting the flying saucer-shaped floors near its crown -- a remarkable vision of the future seen from the past, and its just one of the many delights that will be opened to the reader by this comprehensive guide to two great regions. You may as well start saving for that trip right away... --Barry Forshaw
