Product Details

This volume tells, in their own words, the stories of Oregonians from the prominent to the plain. Here we are given glimpses into lives as different as those of Lydia Taylor, a prostitute; William O. Douglas, Supreme Court Justice; and J.A. Wisdom, whose father (and owner) sold him into slavery for $400. Here are Barry Lopez, writing about his attempts to wrestle meaning from the river near his home; John Reed, about to turn thirty; Bethenia Owens-Adair, one of Oregon's first women doctors; and Coos bays own Annie Miner Peterson, who dictated many hours of Native American oral literature to anthropologists in the 1930's.
