Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Carlos Arnaldo Schwantes has revised and expanded the entire work, which is still the most comprehensive and balanced history of the region. This edition contains significant additional material on early mining in the Pacific Northwest, sea routes to Oregon in the early discovery and contact period, the environment of the region, the impact of the Klondike gold rush, and politics since 1945. Recent environmental controversies, such as endangered salmon runs and the spotted owl dispute, have been addressed, as has the effect of the Cold War on the region's economy. The author has also expanded discussion of the roles of women and minorities and updated statistical information.

Carlos Arnaldo Schwantes is a professor in the Department of History, and director of the Institute for Pacific Northwest Study, at the University of Idaho. He is the author of a number of books, including Hard Traveling: A Portrait of Work Life in the New Northwest (Nebraska 1995).

Book News Annotation:

Schwantes (history, U. of Idaho) argues that the isolation of the Pacific Northwest contributed to a pronounced time lag in its development. He sees the region encompassing Washington, Oregon, and Idaho as a hinterland of sorts even today, but one with a distinctive and colorful history. Cloth edition $32.95 not seen.
