Parts of this book, especially the chapters about the frontier experience were very gripping. In some chapters historical figures are described and shown in dialogues, which is rather peculiar. Some descriptions of the geography and landscape of Oregon, the Cascades, Mount Rainier and Mount Hood are beautiful and inspiring, while other chapters aren't much above the level of a travel broshure. Interesting is the description of the Rose Festival in Portland.
