Summary: Resurrecting a pivotal moment in American history, Across the Great Divide tells the triumphant never-before-told story of the young Scottish fur trader and explorer who discovered the way West, changing the face of the country forever. In the heroic tradition of Stephen Ambrose's Undaunted Courage comes the story of Robert Stuart and his trailblazing discovery of the Oregon Trail. Lewis and Clark had struggled across the high Rockies in present-day Montana and Idaho, but their route had been too perilous for wagon trains to follow. Then, six years after the Corps of Discovery returned from the Pacific, Stuart found the route that would make westward migration possible. Setting out in 1812 on the return trip from establishing John Jacob Astor's fur trading post at Astoria on the Oregon Coast, Stuart and six companions traveled from west to east for more than 3,000 grueling miles by canoe, horseback, and ultimately by foot, following the mountains south until they came upon the one gap in the 3,000-mile-long Rocky Mountain chain that was passable by wagon. Situated in southwest Wyoming between the southern extremes of the Wind River Range and the Antelope Hills, South Pass was a direct route with access to water leading from the Missouri River to the Rockies. Stuart and his traveling party were the first white men to traverse what would become the gateway to the Far West and the Oregon Trail. In the decades to come, an estimated 300,000 emigrants followed the corridor Stuart blazed on their way to the fertile farmlands of the Willamette Valley and the goldfields of California. Across the Great Divide brings to life Stuart's ten-month journey and the remarkable courage, perseverance, and resourcefulness these seven men displayed in overcoming unimaginable hardships. Stuart had come to the Pacific Northwest to make his fortune in the fur trade, but during his stay in the wilderness he emerged as a pioneering western naturalist of the first rank, a perceptive student of Native American cultures, and one of America's most important, if least-known, explorers. Today Stuart's expedition has largely been forgotten, but it ranks as one of the great adventure odysseys of the nineteenth century. A direct descendant of Stuart, award-winning journalist Laton McCartney has obtained unique access to Stuart's letters and diaries from the expedition, lending depth and unparalleled insight to a story that is at once an important account of a pivotal time in American history and a gripping, page-turning adventure., New York : Free Press, 2003, Red Wing, Minnesota : Lone Oak Press , 2001.

Throughout the centuries, Indian tribes fought to control the Platte, knowing such control determined their safety and security on the Great Plains for hundreds of miles in any direction. The buffalo throughout this vast area was doomed once the big shaggy animals were denied the rich Platte feeding grounds. The Platte has been a valley of decision, and was, long before recorded history. Once the cattleman-homesteader difficulties were settled, the way was cleared for agricultural and industrial development. As irrigation and modern farming were introduced, the region became unique for its high food production. The world is a little less hungry because of this. The Oregon Trail, the Pony Express, the first telegraph and railroad to cross the nation, the hammering out of new patterns of cooperation between strong minded cattlemen and determined homesteaders, all played important roles in the story. ......................................................................................................................................Almost every well known person associated with the winning of the west traveled the Platte Valley; Kit Carson, Jim Bridger, "Wild" Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, Buffalo Bill. The East-West life line of the United States was, and is, through the Platte Valley. This was as true in 1867 as it is in 1967. President Lincoln confirmed the Platte's role when he decided to send the first transcontinental railroad the full length of the valley. Empire On The Platte places the river and its valley in better focus than any other book that has come to my attention. Since the Platte River's watershed covers one-half of Nebraska, the Platte story can also be considered the Nebraska story., EUGENE OREGON: Harvest House, 1988.

A stand-alone novel from this award-winning crime writer that, while it has crime genre elements also has more than a touch of science fiction and fantasy. It might be considered a contemporary fable. It begins in Oregon where a man named Guthrie decides to take a walk without knowing where he's going, or how far, or for how long. His only luggage is a small backpack. Wonderful things begin to happen as he walks and he begins to draw people to him, people who join the walk. There are problems to confront during the walk and decisions to be made. About Mark, for instance, who is a killer. A previous owner pasted the flaps of the dustjacket to the inside covers. However, the glue has dried out, releasing the flaps with no damage except light brown stains on the inside covers, the front end page, and the obverse side of the dj.

In an exhilarating tale of historic adventure, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of <i>Confederates in the Attic</i> retraces the voyages of Captain James Cook, the Yorkshire farm boy who drew the map of the modern world Captain James Cook's three epic journeys in the 18th century were the last great voyages of discovery. His ships sailed 150,000 miles, from the Artic to the Antarctic, from Tasmania to Oregon, from Easter Island to Siberia. When Cook set off for the Pacific in 1768, a third of the globe remained blank. By the time he died in Hawaii in 1779, the map of the world was substantially complete. Tony Horwitz vividly recounts Cook's voyages and the exotic scenes the captain encountered: tropical orgies, taboo rituals, cannibal feasts, human sacrifice. He also relives Cook's adventures by following in the captain's wake to places such as Tahiti, Savage Island, and the Great Barrier Reef to discover Cook's embattled legacy in the present day. Signing on as a working crewman aboard a replica of Cook's vessel, Horwitz experiences the thrill and terror of sailing a tall ship. He also explores Cook the man: an impoverished farmboy who broke through the barriers of his class and time to become the greatest navigator in British history. By turns harrowing and hilarious, insightful and entertaining, BLUE LATITUDES brings to life a man whose voyages helped create the 'global village' we know today. ., Henry Holt and Co., 2002, STOKES.

He influenced subsequent research regarding the role of good nutrition to have a healthy life. He was the only individual to win two unshared Nobel Prizes, and is regarded as one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century., Oregon State University Press, 2012, University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln and London: 2007. Softcover. Brand new book. The rivers, canyons, and prairies of the Columbia Basin are the homeland of the Nez Perce. The Nez Perce, or Nimiipuu, inhabited much of what is now north central Idaho and portions of Oregon and Washington for thousands of years. The story of how western settlement drastically affected the Nimiipuu is one of the great and at times tragic sagas of American history. Renowned western historian Alvin M. Josephy Jr. describes the Nimiipuu's attachment to the land and their way of life, religion, and vibrant culture. He also chronicles the western expansion that displaced them, beginning with the Lewis and Clark Expedition in 1805 and followed by the influx of traders and trappers, then miners and farmers. Josephy traces the ill fortune of the Nez Perce as their homeland was carved up by treaties, creating an atmosphere of hostility that would culminate in the Nez Perce war of 1877 and conclude with Chief Joseph's famous pronouncement: "I will fight no more forever." Despite the challenges of the past, the Nimiipuu have maintained their ties to the land. In his introduction to the book, Jeremy FiveCrows details how the tribe has fought for self government to undo the damage wrought by shortsighted practices. Alvin M. Josephy Jr. (1915-2005) was a leading historian of the American West and author of many award-winning books, including Red Power: The American Indians' Fight for Freedom, available in a Bison Books edition. Jeremy FiveCrows is a member of the Nez Perce Tribe and serves as the tribal liaison and publications editor at the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission. Prior to working for the commission he was the editor of the Nez Perce tribal newspaper, the Tats Titoqan. "FiveCrows' insight into the 'still-vibrant heritage' of the tribe is a valuable addition to Josephy's traditional historical commentary."ÑBooklist "Particularly poignant are the accounts of how tribal leaders were divided during treaty negotiations. . . . By contextualizing Chief Joseph properly, Josephy illuminates other Nez Perce leaders whose efforts have been largely ignored. . . . The introduction by Jeremy FiveCrows vibrantly brings the Nez Perce story to the present."ÑJohn Burch, Library Journal ISBN: 0803276230., University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln and London: 2007, Toronto: Toronto Sun Publishing, 1989. 271 pp. Personalised inscription by Max Haines on the front free endpaper.

From the Dust Jacket: "The West of the cattle kingdom… Lat Evans was twenty when he struck out for himself in a job trailing cattle from Oregon to Montana, into country that stretched farther than a man could think. It was country of dramatic beauty and potential wealth and severest privation: it was a life where the biggest fight might have to be settled in a man's mind, without a gun to rely on, or settled between two women who loved him, each in her fashion and both forever. It was a country that held on to its Indian past and reached toward its ranchers' future and tested both with the primitive violence of storm and drought. And here are the people to match the country: Whitey, the drunken hostler who knew how to change a horse brand temporarily; Little Runner, the Indian who wounded Lat but finally owed his life to him; Carmichael, the cow puncher, who liked stories better than responsibility but had to settle for the latter; Tom Ping, whose one morality was loyalty; the fragile Callie, who made a house her home."
