My Oregon III

My Oregon III coverScreen Shot 2015-09-07 at 9.25.37 PMMy Oregon III celebrates the best of Oregon, its people, its places and its passion in a way that only award-winning author Bob Welch can do. From the birth of jogging to the final night of Mac Court, from the humorous to the hallowed, the native Oregonian immerses us in the state he loves. “Welch escorts us from what we thought the trivial to the transfigured,” says Kenny Moore, the Olympic marathoner and former Sports Illustrated writer.

This is the third and final collection of RG columns by Welch, who served as the paper’s columnist from 1999 to 2013 and now writes one column a month (first Sunday) for the Oregon Life section. 19.95
