Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A dynamic and fascinating new view of the historical relationship between peoples and environment in the region". — Carlos Schwantes, author of The Pacific Northwest. "A fascinating and exemplary medley of regional, environmental, and social history. The research is thorough, the description vivid and compelling, the analysis forthright and persuasive, and the writing is clear and cogent. Bunting eloquently champions the imperiled beauty and biodiversity of the Pacific Northwest". — Alan Taylor, author of William Cooper's Town.

Book News Annotation:

From the first sustained contact between Native and European Americans to Frederick Weyerhaeuser's purchase of 900,000 acres of Washington forest, argues that the Pacific Northwest was never as pristine nor as viciously exploited as some have argued. Rather than a version of the traditional Rape of the Wilderness narrative, finds complex relations among competing cultures for resources amid what looked like inexhaustible abundance between northern California and southern Canada.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 165-221) and index.
