Oregon: The Beaver State (World Almanac Library of the States Series)

Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA
The America the Beautiful Second Series presents historical and current information about each state in the Union. Following a uniform format, different authors present detailed information about the states in ten fact-filled chapters. Ingram's Oregon paints a vivid picture of the untamed Oregon territory of the 1800s. The importance of Lewis and Clark and Sacajawea's role in the exploration and the development of Oregon are highlighted. Also included is the impact Oregon's vast natural resources have had on the growth of the state. One third of each book in this series is devoted to the state's geography. Beautiful color photographs highlight seasonal changes. Political statistics and demographics list the names of state governors and racial minorities. Also highlighted are state songs, symbols, and recipes, such as those for Oregon's hazelnut-stuffed pears. Equally interesting are the sections on the famous people from each state. Author Ken Kesey and Nike founder Bill Bowerman are among those who call Oregon home. These concise, easy-to-read, and well-documented texts are excellent sources for middle school researchers. Index. Illus. Photos. Maps. Charts. Source Notes. Further Reading.
