Walking with Ramona

Laura O. Foster


 

Walking with Ramona explores the streets, schools, characters, and neighborhoods of author Beverly Cleary’s Portland. With this newest and most unusual Portland guidebook, readers can walk the very school steps that Beverly climbed. You’ll see the grocery parking lot where Ramona got stuck in the mud, the park lawn where Henry Huggins hunted night crawlers, and the real Portland street that became Klickitat Street, their fictional home. Beverly Cleary’s Portland was much different than the Portlandia of today. Walking with Ramona brings to life what that 1920s and 1930s Portland was like for the “girl from Yamhill” who went on to become an international beloved author. Characters like Ramona and Beezus, Henry and Ribsy, and Ellen and Austine come to life on this hour-long walking route.

Laura O. Foster writes about the Pacific Northwest. Her Portland-based books explore the city’s geology, architecture, neighborhoods, and human and natural history. Shem lives in Portland, Oregon with her family.
