The History of Portland Spirit
and The Cinnamon Bear.
It all started with a 1937 radio serial, created by Glanville and Elizabeth Heish, the kind they don't make anymore. Funny, though, how this particular one has endured, for here we are, 70 years later, with our tribute to 'The Cinnamon Bear,' a true classic that has a special place in the hearts of those who live in the Northwest, where it is perhaps best remembered. It inspired us to make it an annual part of our Willamette River outings, with special Cinnamon Bear family cruises, perfect for the holidays. We invite you to join us this holiday season.
It is a privilege to present this journey to those who will find it warmly nostalgic, and to introduce this classic to yet another generation. We hope that this book will become a treasured family heirloom, for you and yours through the years to come.
