We are a group of readers who have a passion for outdoor literature, a genre that includes nature writing, adventure literature, and mountain literature. 

We'll meet at a pub once per month. To get us started, I've scheduled our first meeting at the Lucky Lab in Southeast Portland.

We'll strive to choose the sort of books that are too good to put down!
