This is an excellent book to get real history of the Oregon High Desert from Reub Long, a man that grew up in the Silver Lake area. He grew up poor, tough and knows how to survive the life style of the desert. What a different time it is from when he grew up there.
This book would be great for any age. Students that are learning about Oregon... to adults that want to explore a different part of Oregon.
