Source Suggests: Adventure Journal Quarterly 


Before you stroll the streets on First Fridays in downtown Bend, check out this monthly review featuring reading recommendations courtesy of the Source and Dudley's Bookshop Café. Then head down to the shop for a discount!

For those of you who don't remember "National Geographic Adventure Magazine," (RIP 1999-2009), it was the pinnacle of outdoor journalism, featuring such authors as Sebastian Junger, Peter Matthiessen, David Quammen, Peter Heller and Gretel Ehrlich. Its arrival in my mailbox was cause for excitement each month. If its passing left a hole in your adventure reading, fret not. The former West Coast editor of "NGA," Steve Casimiro, carries that flag on with Adventure Journal Quarterly. Now a year old, believe me when I say this is the best outdoor writing happening today, and a perfect fit for the adventure-loving residents of Central Oregon.

What I especially love about "AJQ" is what it's not. It's not about stoke, about buying more gear, about going big. It's about going inward when we get out. This is deep, thoughtful outdoor literature, from authors such as Craig Childs and Terry Tempest Williams that has meaning to every enthusiast, not just the hardcore crowd that seems to be featured in many of the other magazines out there. I hesitate to even compare it to a magazine. "AJQ" is like a beautifully produced book with stunning photography and off-the-chart production values, arriving four times a year. Even just picking one up makes customers quietly exclaim, "Oh, wow." To quote Casimiro, "I'm dedicating "AJ Quarterly" to being a place where we can explore and share the best of what it means to live with adventure in our lives." Well said, Steve.

Note: Dudley's is the #1 retailer of "Adventure Journal Quarterly" in the U.S. You go, Bend.
