In the early 1800's, only Native Americans, fur trappers, military expeditions, and missionaries inhabited Central Oregon. Later, the Donation Land Claim Act of 1850 spurred a homestead boom that sparked deadly Paiute raids and range wars. As land became increasingly precious, vigilante ranchers terrorized settlers and gained a foothold in local and state politics. Big eastern lumber companies arrived soon after new steamship and railroad lines. Braly, a journalist who has written numerous articles about the West, chronicles Central Oregon's history from 1825 through the region's post-WWII boom. B&w historical photos are included. There is no subject index. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
