River of the West

Stories From the Columbia
Clark, Robert (Book - 1995 )
River of the West

Item Details

From glacial floods that began to shape the Columbia River twelve thousand years ago to its discovery, conquest, and colonization by the English, Spanish and Americans, the story of this river encompasses not only the full range of American history, but also a geography of myth, hope, and tragedy. Clark surveys the meaning and history of this great river running through the American imagination as well, while providing an unforgettable portrait of the people who lived an died on the Columbia's banks—conquered native peoples, European adventurers, New England missionaries, emigrants from the drought-ridden Midwest, and dreamers seduced by hydropowered New Deal promises of peace and prosperity.
