Selected Writings of Joaquin Miller

Selected Writings of Joaquin Miller Cover

 

Staff Pick

Joaquin Miller was a contemporary of Mark Twain, an early pioneer of Oregon, and lauded as "The Poet of the Sierra." Yet, he's largely forgotten today. In this prose collection he covers Oregon, Idaho, and California. As an example, in "Idahho" (his spelling) he quotes a prospector at Lewiston, "...it oughter be gold-bearin' country, 'cause it's fit for nothin' else; wouldn't even grow grasshoppers." He also writes extensively about the area's Native Americans. I recommend this for Miller's insights into the region and its early inhabitants.
