    What is a road trip without trivia? The book "The Great Northwest Nature Factbook: A Guide to the Reg-ion's Remarkable Animals, Plants and Natural Features" is just the ticket for those long trips through the Northwest. This paperback guide not only includes information which helps identify the animal or plant under consideration, it tests the reader's knowledge with a slate of trivia. For example, the reader will learn that "a badger's teeth, set in powerful jaws, can break through metal bars" and What is a road trip without trivia? The book "The Great Northwest Nature Factbook: A Guide to the Reg-ion's Remarkable Animals, Plants and Natural Features" is just the ticket for those long trips through the Northwest. This paperback guide not only includes information which helps identify the animal or plant under consideration, it tests the reader's knowledge with a slate of trivia. For example, the reader will learn that "a badger's teeth, set in powerful jaws, can break through metal bars" and that the skunk cabbage, "a Pacific Northwest native plant, produces the largest leaves of any Northwestern native plant more than 3 feet long and 1 foot wide." There are more than 250 entries in this portable, easy-to-read book. The section on animals deals with all Oregon, Washington and Idaho's special creatures, whether they have fur, fins or feathers. "Plants" not only explain the features and habitat of different vegetation, it details some of the historical uses of those trees, flowers and shrubs for shelter, food and even medicine. The chapter dealing with natural features not only addresses the physical landscape, it investigates the forces at work behind them: volcanos, wind, water and earthquakes.
