Harvey Manning film debuts Wednesday
First came the statue in Issaquah. Now comes the documentary.
The legacy of Harvey Manning, the legendary writer and conservationist, is heralded in a new film by Robert and Kathy Chrestensen. "The Irate Birdwatcher" is about wilderness preservation in Washington, as told in Harvey's voice.
You may remember Harvey Manning most from his distinct point of view in the 100 Hike series of guidebooks for Mountaineers Books (co-authored and photographed by Ira Spring). These and his other writings were instrumental in the creation of North Cascades National Park and in the passage of the Washington Wilderness Act of 1984.
A free public screening of "The Irate Birdwatcher" will be held at The Mountaineers new Seattle clubhouse at Sandpoint on Wednesday at 7pm. Here are the details:
