Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"In 1843 three Applegate brothers and their families made their way West by the old Oregon Trail. They wintered in one place, moved further south, and eventually settled at Yoncalla, where a divided house was built that is still standing. The author, a descendant of one of the brothers, has lived there. She has gathered together everything that was saved over the years (mainly by the women of the family) and from these letters, journals, recollections, manuscripts, sketch books, and 'a truly vast array of camera works' she has fashioned a vivid history of times, places, and people. It is history—but a very individual and personal history, full to overflowing with recollections and pictures." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
