Owyhee Trails: The West's Forgotten Cornerby Mike Hanley
Synopses & Reviews
Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press
The high desert of the Owyhee Mountain region has a history rich in native conflicts, settlers braving its harsh deserts, miners searching for fortune in its rugged mountains and boomtowns springing up and then crashing down as the mines dried up.
The Owyhees (pronounced oh-Y-hees), are sharp and ragged peaks rising from the high desert of Oregon and Idaho. They have been the scene of mining booms and Indian battles, holdups and range wars. Mike Hanley ranches near Jordan Valley, Oregon, in the shadow of the Owyhee Mountains. With Ellis Lucia, he recounts the boisterous past and present of this wild and rugged corner of the West.
