This is a great little book with lots of photos about the little-known State of Jefferson, that tried to set itself up as a state even in the 1850s, then actually established itself as a state just before the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Sort of the State that Never Was. I loved the old photos, esp. of the miners, the Native American tribes, and the old towns. Great history for anyone who likes California or Oregon history, or for the person who enjoys trivia and old photographs. Lots of interesting stuff. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope to see a sequel!
