New book of Elwha River photos

"Away out over everything: the Olympic Peninsula and the Elwha River" will be available in October. The book's photographs are by Mary Peck. Charles Wilkinson contributes an essay.

"Images and text afford us glimpses of the primeval power that still lingers in this wild place. Peck’s meditations on the roadless ocean beaches, the emerald river valleys with their old growth temperate rain forests, and the denuded hillsides urge the reader to acknowledge the less tangible values we must consider in managing our natural resources."
