by William L. Sullivan
New Hikes in Southern Oregon

Oregon's hiking guru takes you on a slide show tour of new trails he discovered while researching his book, "100 Hikes in Southern Oregon."  We'll find hidden beaches on the Illinois River, explore a Darlingtonia bog at Eight Dollar Mountain, backpack in Northern California's, Trinity Alps, and find out what new trails are being built at Crater Lake.  As always, Sullivan spices his talk with notes on the geology, wildlife, and history.

Sullivan is the author of a dozen books about Oregon, including "Oregon Trips & Trails," "Oregon's Greatest Natural Disasters," Hiking Oregon's History, and the popular “100 Hikes” series.  His journal of a 1000-mile hike he took across Oregon in 1985, “Listening for Coyote,” was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of Oregon’s “100 Books,” the 100 most significant books in the state’s history.  He has also written a memoir and three novels.  New in April 2010 is his historical novel "The Ship in the Hill", based on the true story of a Viking longship unearthed on a Norwegian farm in 1904.
