Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Ulrich, a journalist who has written for United Press International and The Oregonian covering Native American issues, introduces readers to the story of the people who have fought for 60 years to retrieve replacement lands the U.S. government promised them when the backwater of the Bonneville Dam flooded their traditional fishing sites. Descendants of the original recipients of the treaty tell about their struggles in and out of the courts in an attempt to assure that access to fishing places is secured. Ulrich incorporates their stories with those of other families whose lives were changed forever by the introduction of the dam.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
