Books About Oregon, Washington & Northwest Golf



Sauvie Island; A Step Back in Time by KiKi CanniffFor centuries visitors have come to Sauvie Island, a 24,000 acre rural paradise situated where the Willamette and Columbia Rivers meet -- 12 miles north of Portland, Oregon. Early explorers wrote about the island's friendly native population, its plentiful but noisy waterfowl and natural beauty in their journals. The waterfowl are still plentiful and the natural beauty  relatively unchanged.

Modern visitors are drawn by the 13,000 acre Sauvie Island Wildlife Management Area's flat hiking trails, wide sandy beaches, plentiful waterfowl and rural charm. Visitors who know where to look can also explore the island's rich history; one  that includes a wealthy tribe of Native American residents, visits by famous explorers, the roots of Oregon's statehood, and the Willamette Valley's first town site.

Sauvie Island; A Step Back in Time by KiKi Canniff will help you to enjoy all of Sauvie Island's recreational opportunities. It shows you where to hike, picnic, sunbathe, swim, hunt and fish, as well as how to find the island's historic areas, explore the island by boat and when the best time is to come for u-pick crops and annual events.

KiKi Canniff has been writing books about Oregon and Washington since 1981. Her first was a limited edition book about a historic Oregon island where she was living at the time. With that first title Sauvie Island; A Step Back in Time KiKi made the move from writing articles for major magazines to writing outdoor books. An updated edition of that first book was released in 2014.

For nearly two decades KiKi spent her time exploring Oregon and Washington, and writing guides to the region's campgrounds, free attractions, historic sites, natural areas, museums, caves, hiking trails, waterfalls and golf courses. Local newspapers referred to her as the Camper's Guru. Although most of these early outdoor titles are now out of print they are still hotly traded in the region's used bookstores.
