Historic America: The NorthwestJohn S. Bowman
This richly illustrated volume tells the story of the first inhabitants and the many groups of settlers who later came to call the Northwest home. Featured here are the lives and legacies of Native Americans and the missionaries who came to convert them, trappers and explorers, prospectors, loggers, railroad builders, and homesteaders. Some of their communities were transient and others became permanent, but all contributed to the region’s unique vitality and progressive, open outlook.
