Incredibly frustrating that my book came as a different edition than the image posted. I bought this book under the assumption it was what I needed for a college course and am now dealing with an edition that does not correlate with my instructors syllabus. Bummer.. won't order from here again.

This excellent book is now somewhat dated in that it does not include the 2010 census or other more recent data, but remains an excellent resource. There really isn't any other way to learn as much about the northwest in so little time. This book defines the Pacific Northwest as Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.

This book contains eighteen chapters as follows: The Region, Cultural-Historical Geography, Population, Transportation, Landforms and Geology, Land Use, Climate, Vegetation, Agriculture, Forest Resources/Ownership/Harvest, Soils, Water Resources, Energy Resources and Distribution, Ocean Resources, Minerals and Mining, Manufacturing and Service Industries, Outdoor Recreation and Tourism, and Hunting and Fishing.

The chapters on Landforms/Geology and Vegetation were next to useless for laymen being far too technical with little attempt to explain themselves (but are also very brief). The remainder of the chapters were excellent. The sections on Water Resources, Land Use, Agriculture, Transportation, and "The Region" were most illuminating.

For instance, the chapter on Agriculture has 19 small maps, each showing the distribution of different agricultural products from wheat to apples to milk cows. The same chapter also had a chart showing farmland growth and decline by selected counties, a map showing the number of farms, the percent of farms owned by corporations, irrigated land, and the % change in number of farms. Another table shows the land in farms and farmland use. Still another map gives a detailed showing of croplands that differentiates between irrigated and non-irrigated. All this in addition to several photos, still more charts/maps, and a compelling and clear text covering agricultural issues and regional variation across the Pacific Northwest. I found it relatively easy to follow.

The book itself is rather short, but they are big pages and packed full of info. Well worth a read if you want to understand the region better. It took me about the amount of time it would normally take to read a 300 page nonfiction book.
