It’s hard to miss this book if you’re walking through Powell’s Bookstore because it’s prominently displayed with other localregional books in several rooms Because I grew up in Portland and read a few Beverly Cleary books as a child I couldn’t resist getting this little gem The bulk of the book is a fairly detailed description of a walking tour of Ramona’s and Beverly Cleary’s neighborhoods in Hollywood and Grant Park I’m not a big enough fan of Cleary to make a special visit to the garden named in her honor but there are some uniue Portland only places worth a visit that probably aren’t in any conventional travel guide— or common knowledge even to native PortlandersFor anyone who wants to learn about Portland businesses schools buildings and streets especially on the east side during Beverly Cleary’s childhood and beyond this is a great primer Some fun take aways for me included the history of the Fred Meyer stores I either forgot or never knew the first Fred Meyer store was in the Hollywood district and was the first one stop shopping center in the nation I also didn’t know there’s still a drugstore in The Hollywood district with a soda fountain And learning about Sandy Boulevard’s history as a Native American pathway and Oregon Trail was eye poppingThis was a fast and worthwhile read that’s also a worthy reference for native Portlanders and travelers alike
