Portland author and hiking enthusiast Matt Reeder will present his book "Extraordinary Oregon!: 125 Fantastic Hikes Across the State of Oregon," on Wednesday, August 2 at 6:30 p.m. at Paulina Springs Books in Sisters.

"Extraordinary Oregon!: 125 Fantastic Hikes Across the State of Oregon" is a book for every Oregonian and anyone who has ever planned a trip to Oregon only to be overwhelmed with the bounty of hiking options found in one of America's most beautiful states.

The book features 125 hikes across the state, from the Oregon Coast to the Oregon Desert, and from the Oregon Redwoods to Hells Canyon. With pinpoint directions, detailed topographic maps, and a wealth of extraordinary hikes across the state, this book should help you plan your Oregon adventures for many years to come. Reeder is also the author of "PDX Hiking 365" and "101 Hikes in the Majestic Mount Jefferson Region."

Author Matt Reeder moved from Illinois to Oregon at age seven with his family. He grew up hiking and camping all over the Pacific Northwest; he never felt more at home than on the trail. He moved back to Illinois at age 16 but returned eight years later to settle in Portland. Since moving back to Oregon, he has logged more than 5,000 miles on the trail and has hiked the vast majority of the trails within a two-hour drive of Portland. "Off the Beaten Trail" was his first hiking guidebook, published in the spring of 2013.

Reeder lives in an old farmhouse in southeast Portland with his wife, Wendy. When not on the trail or in the classroom, he spends his free time obsessing about music, following the Portland Trail Blazers, and reading voraciously. You can usually identify Matt on the trail by his red St. Louis Cardinals hat, a visible sign of his lifelong love of the 2006 and 2011 World Series Champions.

Paulina Springs Books is located at 252 W. Hood Ave.
