The Hanford Reach
A Land Of Contrasts
by Susan Zwinger
 
The desert along the Columbia River is known primarily for hosting the country's most toxic nuclear outpost--public land that barely exists in public consciousness. 

Because the Hanford Reach has been posted off-limits by the military since 1943,  this book offers readers a little-seen glimpse into what the Pacific Northwest's arid east was like before the postwar boom. Susan Zwinger takes readers through this terrain while Skip Smith's striking photos capture the subtleties of the contrasting vistas.
