Michael McCloskey:

A Glimpse Into History

On Sunday, August 5, 2018 , the West Linn Historical Society presented guest author, Michael McCloskey, as he read from and discussed his new book “A Glimpse Into History: What Prominent People Have Said About Nature in Oregon and the Need to Conserve It.”

A “Glimpse into History” features the words of over ninety figures who turned Oregon into the premier “green” state. They were explorers, pioneers, settlers, ministers, climbers, scientists, poets, politicians, writers, ranchers, activists, lawyers, and businessmen. They shaped the culture that saw value in nature and triggered demands for policies to protect it. Through their inspiring words, their presence is still felt. Oregon was blessed in being shaped by such talented, passionate people.
