Great and Minor Moments in Oregon History: An Illustrated Anthology of Illuminating Glimpses Into Oregon's Past - From Prehistory to the Present Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

An engaging and fascinating collection of essays and anecdotes delves into both the familiar and the surprising in Oregon history. Rather than a comprehensive history, Great and Minor Moments in Oregon History is an off-beat survey of the long span from the prehistoric to the present with in-depth, thought provoking, and often humorous glimpses of the personalities and peculiarities that inhabit Oregon's past. Learn what forces of nature combined to create Oregon over geologic eons, how the land's natural gifts inspired the mythic world of its original natives, and what was it like for Lewis and Clark to spend an Oregon winter on the north coast — without the modern tourist conveniences. See revealed, as never before, the seedy vice underworld of Portland's 1950s rackets mobs. The Beaver States rich history — from the sublime to the ridiculous, the momentous to the minute — awaits within these pages.
