The Shelf2Life History of the Pacific Northwest Collection is a refreshing set of pre-1923 volumes that examine the pioneers, explorers and natives who roamed and settled in this lush coastal region. Covering a diverse landscape from the ocean to the prairies to the mountains, these titles study botany, geology and mineralogy from the prehistoric period up to the early 20th century. Complete with biographies on the peace-making missionary Father Pierre Jean De Smet and the influential "father of Oregon" Dr. John McLoughlin, this collection provides insight into everyday challenges these notable figures encountered in their struggles to create new communities. The Shelf2Life History of the Pacific Northwest Collection allows readers the opportunity to take an expedition down meandering rivers and past towering evergreens to discover a region with a rich cultural and natural history unlike any other.
