To the Promised Land: A History of Government and Politics in Oregon Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first comprehensive political history of Oregon, To the Promised Land also examines the social and economic changes the state has pioneered during its almost two hundred years. Highlighting major political figures, campaigns, ballot measures, and the history of legislative sessions, Tom Marsh traces the evolution of Oregon from incorporated territory to a state at the forefront of national environmental and social movements.

From Jason Lee's first letter urging Congress to take possession of the Oregon Country to John Kitzhaber's precedent-setting third term as governor, from the land frauds of the early 20th century to the state’s land-use planning goals, from the Beach Bill to the Bottle Bill, this book tells Oregon's story.

Featuring interesting trivia, historical photographs, and biographical sketches of key politicians, To the Promised Land is an essential volume for readers interested in Oregon's history.

Review:

"I am especially pleased to know that Tom Marsh has done painstaking research to bind our history in this tome; perhaps we will learn from our past and forge ahead with positive results for generations to come." Gerry Frank
