Many Waters - Natural History of the Walla Walla Valley and Vicinity
"From the Blue Mountains to the Columbia River, southeastern Washington and northeastern Oregon, in particular the Walla Walla Valley, is a remarkable region, one that American Indians called "Wallah Wallah," or "Many Waters." And for good reason. It's always been a bountiful place with its rich soils and streams teeming with fish. In Many Waters, venture into the same area that botanist David Douglas explored in 1826 and discover what has drawn people here for millenia. Whitman College geologist Bob Carson leads the journey, along with fellow geologists Patrick Spencer, Nick Bader and Kevin Pogue, as well as biologist Mike Denny. Paintings by Leslie Cain and photographs by Duane Scroggins and others document the beauty of these mountains and valleys, while many writers and poets share their love for this magnificent area."
