Oregon's Golden Years

Oregon's Golden Years Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gold! A single handful of shiny nuggets changed Oregon from a quiet settlement in the Willamette Valley to a brawling frontier that stretched from the Rockies to the Pacific Ocean. Thousands of adventuresome souls faced staggering hardships as they streamed across 2,000 miles of America's wasteland and then, armed with pick and shovel, headed for the mines. Oregon's Golden Years honors the men and women who came west in search of yellow metal.

Synopsis:

Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press

Men in search of treasure opened the gates to Oregon's wilderness and Oregon's Golden Years - with affection and good humor - honors these men and their imperishable lust for gold.
