The other thread lists the 20 Best Ever Oregon books, according to Portland Magazine. Are there books that anyone thinks should have been included on such a list? What are your Top 20 Oregon books?

Many of my favorites were on the Portland Magazine list, but I'd definitely have to add Honey in the Horn by H.L. Davis. It's probably the most honest tale of the settling of Oregon. It also won the Pulitzer.

One of my compulsive Must Read lists is Pulitzer Prize winning novels, so Honey in the Horn lurks in the back of my mind as a book I want to read. But I've had a hard time finding it. Not that I've searched long and hard, but I've never come across it when browsing my favorite book haunts.

Looks like Powell's has a number of copies (big surprise). :-)

Winds of Morning is also wonderful. I really should read the rest of his work.

Well, I have to add The Brothers K by David James Duncan - brilliant writing, engaging characters and story. And I just finished it, it's fresh in my mind and heart.

And Crescent by Diana Abu-Jaber -- a simply YUMMY book.
