From the brisk waters of Seattle to the earthy mushrooms of Portland, author Darrin Nordahl takes us on a journey to expand our palates with the local flavors of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. There are a multitude of indigenous fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, and seafood waiting to be rediscovered in the luscious PNW. Eating the Pacific Northwest looks at the unique foods that are indigenous to the region including salmon, truffles, and of course, geoduck, among others. Festivals featured include the Oregon Truffle Festival and Dungeness Crab and Seafood Festival, and there are recipes for every ingredient, including Buttermilk Fried Oysters with Truffled Rémoulade and Nootka Roses and Salmonberries. Nordahl also discusses some of the larger agricultural, political, and ecological issues that prevent these wild, and arguably tastier foods, from reaching our table.

Southern Berkshire County in Western Massachusetts is a magical place. Some call it paradise. The special synergy that exists here between people and place has inspired remarkable residents for centuries. From Mohican John Konkapot to African American W.E.B. Du Bois, from novelist Catharine Sedgwick to mental health pioneer Agnes Gould, the Housatonic Valley and surrounding hills have proved to be a haven for inventors and industrialists, artists and activists, entrepreneurs, and educators. Stockbridge summer resident and legendary sculptor Daniel Chester French once said to a New York reporter, "I spend six months of the year up there, it is heaven." William Cullen Bryant, Norman Rockwell, Cyrus Field, William Stanley, Elizabeth Freeman (Mumbet), Laura Ingersoll Secord, and numerous other luminaries have all passed on to a different heavenly plane. Still, the Southern Berkshires continue to produce local legends and unsung heroes--folks like community activist Rachel Fletcher, Pastor Charles Van Ausdall, educator Mae Brown, and police chief Rick Wilcox.
