KIRKUS REVIEW

In Time style and radio script technique, the history of Oregon from 1792 to 1859 is told. Through individual lives, cities, controversies, incidents, the story is enlivened and the progress from unknown territory to statehood, the milestones represented graphically, colloquially, contemporaneously. The trailblazers, hazards, builders, the outpost into territory into state. Episodic, making use of animate as well as inanimate characteristics, this personalizes a last continental frontier in picturing its historic crossroads through the people and events. Chronologically, theatrically; vivid, this is graphic, easily assimilated regional history.
