I always enjoy reading books that take place in my home state, Washington. I believe this book I found for free on my Kindle. Working in the Northwest Woods by Dennis Willard took place in Washington, with a trip to Oregon or Idaho here and there.
I found that there wasn’t really any point to this book, or the stories in it, besides to bring enjoyment to the write and reader. I found most of the stories were interesting and some even comical.
I enjoyed the descriptive logging section, that told of how logging was done in the old days. It was fun to learn that.
I think that the author did a great job relaying the love that he felt for the forest and trees.
Maybe that is why I also liked the book. I felt a connection between the author and myself because of my love for trees and the Pacific Northwest. Mr. Willard definitely seemed proud to call Washington state home.
I would recommend this book to others. Especially those with a love for the outdoors, the Northwest and those green giants that we depend upon so much. You may even learn a thing or two!
This book also completed my reading challenge for the month of January.
