Natural themes run from mushrooms to Yakima Valley apples to conifer cones to common camp robbers. History and culture are covered via Lewis and Clark, totem poles and coffee culture. Mosaics of Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver capture the cities with contemporary and classic crest-like pride." —The Register-Guard
