Ellen Waterston was a rancher in Oregon’s high desert sagebrush before she moved to Bend to live in the city. But she never lost her love for the desert and the people who live there. Waterston’s newest book, “Walking the High Desert,” chronicles her exploration of parts of the Oregon Desert Trail, and her conversations about issues that govern the lives of people living in that remarkable terrain.
