1917, the Cascade Range, Washington: The story of the trip takes the reader by proxy into some of the finest scenery there is outdoor, and gives him an alluring glimpse of the delights of a camping-trip among our Western mountains, where every breath of air brings pleasure, where food tastes good and sleep refreshes.
