Picked up this book at Powell's on a whim and the first chapter is well worth the price of the book. Solnit talks about getting lost as a way to learn more about ourselves or discover something we never knew existed. I pretty much highlighted everything in the first 50 pages.
Portland Traditional Homelands We acknowledge the land on which we sit and which we occupy in Portland. The Portland Metro area rests on traditional village sites of the Multnomah, Wasco, Cowlitz, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Bands of Chinook, Tualatin, Kalapuya, Molalla, and many other tribes who made their homes along the Columbia River creating communities and summer encampments to harvest and use the plentiful natural resources of the area.
