Former Tribune editor publishes new book

DOUG BURKHARDTDoug Burkhardt, former associate editor of the Hillsboro Tribune, has written another book in Arcadia Publishing’s Images of Modern America series.

The title, “Columbia River Gorge Railroads,” uses the pen name D.C. Jesse Burkhardt. The book’s publication date was March 28. It visually displays changes in railroad infrastructure and operations and spotlights people living in the area. Its content stretches over several decades.

Burkhardt, a Michigan native and a 1981 graduate of the University of Oregon, was editor of the White Salmon (Wash.) Enterprise for 17 years before working at the Woodburn Independent and later at the Hillsboro Tribune. He has resided in White Salmon, Northwestern Lake and Snowden in Washington, as well as Hood River and The Dalles in Oregon.

Using roughly 160 images — mostly his own photos — Burkhardt’s newest book captures the gorge landscapes trains travel through every day in all kinds of weather.

Burkhardt is also the author of “Travelogue from an Unruly Youth”; “Freight Weather: The Art of Stalking Trains”; “The Crowbar Hotel”; “Ann Arbor Railroads”; and “Rolling Dreams: Portraits of the Northwest’s Railroad Heritage.”
