Riveting. Incomparable suffering. Courage. Stamina. Determination.
Another in a superb series of the history of the Pacific Northwest. A terribly important tale that played a seminal role in the discoveries and exploration of this geographic region – and the lust for wealth that propelled those engaged in this endeavor.
The research here is fantastic. The writing is accessible for all audiences. Frankly, this story is shocking – in far too many ways to recount here. Simply a splendid story that I HIGHLY recommend.
The human drama – the sheer determination to survive when confronted with unimaginable hardship – is a seminal contribution of this work.
