COLUMBIA RIVER: END OF THE LEWIS AND CLARK TRAIL by Brian Penttila
The Pacific Northwest has a rich and fascinating history, especially along the mighty Columbia River near Astoria, Oregon. Many of us are familiar with the story of Lewis and Clark as they crossed the country in search of the Pacific Ocean, but what of the people who inhabited the region before and after their adventure?
Through text and over 100 historical photographs, Penttila shares the tough everyday lives and extraordinary events of the Native inhabitants and early settlers in this region, including: the history; shipping; fishing; logging; and basic living in this area. Whether you’re from the Pacific Northwest or not, you will find the history of this western shipping port to be fascinating.
