Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume tells, in their own words, the stories of over forty Oregonians from the prominent to the plain. Here are glimpses into lives as different as those of Amanda Johnson, who came to Oregon in 1853 as a slave; William Kittredge confronting his family's abuse of the land; John Reed about to turn thirty; Mitzi Asai Loftus remembering the forced relocation of her family during World War II; and Bethenia Owens-Adair, one of Oregon's first women doctors, participating in a controversial post mortem. In telling their own stories, Oregonians — from Astoria to the Alvord Desert — speak to the diversity of life and labor and human response to a land with many faces.

Review:

"The Oregon Literature Series is considered a national model.... Another wonderful Oregon project." — John Frohnmayer, Chair, National Endowment for the Arts

Review:

"A landmark publication.... This is the key work of the present generation of scholars and writers for Oregon." — Kim R. Stafford, Director, Northwest Writing Institute

Review:

"... I applaud your efforts. We simply cannot ignore our own regional literature if we are to have any comprehensive understanding of a wider world." — Terry Melton, Executive Director, Western States Arts Foundation
