Recommended to Patricia by: Oregonian, John Terry.
Read in April, 2012

Read for Kenton Book Group (pssst. This was my "pick" for book group and I'm thrilled it turned out so well)

This is a really fabulous early settler/Indian Oregon narrative that is also a gripping story. It's slow to start (in fact, several people in the book group commented that it was a bit slow, but they liked it even though they hadn't yet finished it. Every single one of them had stopped around page 50) but picks up rapidly after that. The book included great characters, what I felt was a sympathetic portrayal of Oregon cost Indians circa 1840. I'm not sure why this is not required reading in various high schools around Oregon, but it should be.
