Ashland is a jewel of a town, which you’ll see when you look through this book.
This book is a wonderful reminder of a great trip and friends I have made in Ashland. The photographs are wonderful.
Do NOT put this book on a bookshelf. It needs to be available for the weary visitor or family member to wander through Ashland and be restored.
If you have ever visited Ashland, Oregon or the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, your coffee table is not complete without this book.

What a jewel this book is!
Clearly, Ms. Tricarico has “chased” a lot of light. There are glorious shots of sunsets and other light displays that border on the beatific.
