Journal Entry 1 by buttonbright from Raleigh, North Carolina USA on Thursday, June 05, 2003

This book has not been rated.

It's the story or a nation, the seceded states of Washington, Oregon and Northern California. An ecologically balanced utopia, where the possibilities are infinite.

I am taking books from the outside shelves of Readers Corner, a Raleigh used book store, and releasing them. This is one of those books. If you like it, take it and write a journal entry at www.BookCrossing.com - its easy and anonymous. Then when you are done with it, find a nice place to release it.

I don't think this book was meant to be funny, but it's hilarious!!

I'm from Portland, Oregon, and it makes me laugh to see all of the "weird" Ecotopian behaviors that really exist (and the ones that don't!) I wonder if the author knows how close he got on some things (and how far away on others....) Even though the Northwest isn't a separate country, in some ways it really feels like it is!

For the record: When somebody from the Pacific Northwest talks about seceding, the generally recognized name of our wishful-thinking country is not Ecotopia, it's Cascadia. And it would include not only Washington, Oregon, and northern California, but also British Columbia and parts of northern Idaho.

I'm going to give this book to a friend of mine in Washington, DC when I'm done reading it, and then ask her to send it to my mother in Portland. They'll love it!
