Impressions of the North Cascades back in print

I spoke with John Miles, Environmental Studies Professor at Huxley College of the Environment, WWU, yesterday, lamenting that his wonderful compilation of essays about the North Cascades had gone out of print. He reminded me that you can get one-off copies made by the "Espresso Book Machine" at any of its locations, but also announced that Village Books in Fairhaven was using their EBM to create their own imprint, Chuckanut Editions, and that Impressions is one of the first titles to be available on that imprint! It's "on the shelves now" at Village Books, or you can order a copy online. This is great news for all of us dedicated to conservation of this region! The book is inspired and inspiring.  CLICK HERE for more info and to order.

A sample of the Contents:
Scott Babcock: Ancient Aires and Rock Romancing (Geology)
Bob Mierendorf: Who Walks on the Ground (Archaelology)
Saul Weisberg: A Naturalist's View (Education)
Scott Brennan: Sitec and Tomorrow (Ecosystems)

John is also the author of Wilderness in National Parks: Playground or Preserve.

We'll close with one of his favorite quotes: 

"Whatever attitude to human existence you fashion for yourself, know that it is valid only if it be the shadow of an attitude to nature." -Henry Beston, The Outermost Househe Outermost House
