KIRKUS REVIEW

Regional biography, which is informally informative, about the Cascades and that section of Cregon and Washington they dominate. Their history, and the un-gentlemanly between England, Spain, Russia and the United States for this last empire in the New World which was not settled until the mid-19th century; the west, and the attempts to cross the Cascades at various points and various intervals; the ing of the Barlow trail and the opening up of new routes -- And -- with enthusiasm, descriptions of Mt. Rainier, the most massive peak , and Mount Mood, the most beautiful; of mountain climbing; of geology, timber, fishing, ndians (their tribes, legends, songs), all this combines to make specialized sectional material pleasantly dispensed.
