Orchards of Eden


Item Details

"America's early 1900's dream of greening the desert through irrigation drew hundreds of would-be farmers to the Columbia River hamlet of White Bluffs. Yearning for a healthy, possibly lucrative life in the magnificent setting, they struggled with nature, railroads, power companies, commission houses, water systems and the ever-disappointing market. The Shaw-Wheeler family tells the story of how, despite all these adversities, the orchardists built a remarkable, thriving community until it was cut short by events of World War Two."--P. [4] of cover.
