About Harland Eastwood
From his office, renowned historian and local author Harland Eastwood, Jr., ponders a current dilemma - what to do about history. It is always the same question for Harland - what to do with the history he’s collected in more than 40 years.
During those years, Harland collected newspaper clippings, books, guides to bottles and where they came from, old photographs and city directories, even obtaining information from the ground itself through metal detecting.

real life when model "A"s were everything
I have read and enjoyed many of Harlands books and found them both interesting and educational The lifes stories are true and factual .Many of the tales unfolded in his writing i was part of or close by. Enjoyable reading about history in the northwest and of the authors adventures.
Wild West Saloons (Of Adams County) 1885 - 1915
I found the book to be a very interesting piece of history of the region and of the various saloons and drinking establishments of the time. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the book is probably more of interest to the people local to where the stories depict. Still, though, a slice of history that could have been anywhere in the west.
Nothing But Up
I know Harland Eastwood, the writer of this book as well as his father, of whom it was about, but there is very much to this story that I didn’t know. It is a well written piece of personal history that I found fascinating. I would recommend it to anyone interested in people who endured through hardship and made it seem easy and a life very worthwhile.
Northwest Maritime Sampler
Loved it! Great pictures of the many, many early boats and ships that plyed the Northwest from the early 1900’s and equally good descriptions of the history of the boats.
Memories of an Elderly Kid
Harland is a friend of mine and it was great to hear stories of his adolescent years and early adulthood, many of which I hadn’t heard before. Excellent, fun read.
