Written by Erin K. O’Connell
Illustrated by Diana Thewlis

Loowit’s Legend is the story of the Columbia River Gorge. It was first told by the native people of the region and passed down for many years. Now children can enjoy the tale in this new illustrated children’s book, available in January 2012.

With stunning watercolor illustrations to accompany this adapted tale, Loowit’s Legend tells the story of two brothers, Pahtoe and Wy’East, who compete for the love of a beautiful maiden named Loowit. In doing so, they defy the Great Spirit’s wishes and set the stage for the creation of the Cascades.
