Oregon: The Beaver State (World Almanac Library of the States Series)by Scott Scott Ingram, W. Scott Ingram
Oregon's state motto, "She Flies with Her Own Wings," describes the independent spirit of the people who live there. Arriving in 1805, Lewis and Clark were struck by the pristine beauty of the rugged Cascades and the Columbia River Gorge. Thousands of intrepid pioneers followed their lead, traveling the Oregon Trail. Through succeeding generations, Oregonians have proudly preserved their state's awesome environment.
