Where We Call Home: Lands, Seas, and Skies of the Pacific Northwest
by Josephine Woolington Author
In this volume from Portland State University's Ooligan Press, follow along with author Josephine Woolington in her first published work as she explores the ecological events in deep time and more recently in human history that have brought the Pacific Northwest to where it is today. Woolington diagnoses many of the environmental ills facing the Northwest in this book, and talks to local educators, scientists, artists, and Indigenous leaders from the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, the Haida Nation, the Yakama Nation, the Makah Tribe, and more in an effort to create an empathetic and collective perspective on how to move forward to address the crises facing the region. The end result is a book filled with essays blending science and narrative prose, powerfully telling the story of this place and offering an intentional and thoughtful way to live in it and be connected to it. Those interested in ecology, Indigenous perspectives, nature writing, and all lovers of the Pacific Northwest will enjoy this powerful book about this beautiful region.
