The Dallas Public Library will host Oregon author William Sullivan at 7 p.m. on Thursday.

Sullivan will present a slide show and talk about his book, Hiking Oregon’s History. His slide show takes us on a hiker’s tour of Oregon’s most scenic historic sites.

Based on his outdoor guidebook, the presentation follows Lewis and Clark’s trail across Tillamook Head and traces Chief Joseph’s trail of tears through Hells Canyon. Expect tips on dramatic hiking trails to fire lookouts, lighthouses, and gold mines, too, mixed in with anecdotes about trailside wildflowers and geology.

Sullivan is the author of 21 books and numerous articles about Oregon, including an “Oregon Trails” feature column for the Eugene Register-Guard and the Salem Statesman-Journal. Sullivan has hiked nearly every public trail in Oregon. This is a free event. There will be books to purchase and have signed by the author.
