This is a real trainwreck of a book but I couldn't stop reading it because of the history of Portland woven through it. The plot is ludicrous, the racism endemic and repulsive, the characters mostly unlikeable and unlikely. But every few pages, there would be something about, "Go ask Mr. Terwilliger, I saw him plowing earlier." and I would just keep on. The love interest's wandering Irish accent is hilarious, as are all the accents painfully rendered herein.

Entertaining book of Oregon and Portland history; a quick read even though the writing is pretty old-fashioned.There's lots of very amusing judgments about women who aren't good housekeepers having loose morals and vice versa. This is a sequel, and will definitely seek out the first book about the Oregon Trail itself.
