This book is historically significant and written in the archaic language of its time. I read it for the stunning descriptions of the Pacific Northwest before the landscape was altered by civilization and modern development. I also got an uncomfortable view of the racism prevalent in the authors own words and in the policies and practices of his peers. Thank you for mentioning this old book, Timothy Egan, in The Good Rain.
