Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Noted historians from the United States and Canada explore society, culture, and change in the resource-laden Pacific Northwest. Essays examine Spanish exploration of the Northern coast, traditional American Indian religion and worldview, the long-term relationship of a fragile Canadian union with its powerful southern neighbor, unique political and constitutional foundations, World War II black and white immigration, growing up Japanese-American in the 1930s-1940s, women's history, and more. Included are contributions by New Spain specialist David J. Weber, Native American expert Alvin M. Josephy Jr., political activist Gordon Hirabayashi, women's historian Susan H. Armitage, Canadian-American experts Kenneth S. Coates and Gerald Friesen, western historian Quintard Taylor, and others. Terra Northwest continues the Sherman and Mable Smith Pettyjohn Lecture Series of publications examining essential aspects of Pacific Northwest history.

Book News Annotation:

Many of the 11 studies here originated in the Pettyjohn Distinguished Lecture Series on the history of Washington state and the northwest US, held annually during the 1980s and 1990s at Washington State University. Historians specializing in the region discuss such topics as the development myth in Canada and the US, the Washington Constitution of 1889, and African-American migration 1940-50.
