This Land - Oregon

This Land-Oregon is a narrative history of Oregon, from pre-contact to the present. It is written by one of the Pacific Northwest's most respected scholars, William G. Robbins, Emeritus Distinguished Professor of History at Oregon State University and the author of many books of history, including Hard Times in Paradise: Coos Bay, Oregon, 1850-1986 and Landscapes of Promise: The Oregon Story 1800-1940. Robbins tells the history of Oregon by identifying important themes and questions for all readers to consider, especially teachers and students. The narrative reflects the latest research and thinking about western history and serves as a foundation to the other histories that are part of the Oregon History Project.">
