Many years ago, the noted California historian, Hubert Howe Bancroft, told the story of the Pacific Northwest in several fat volumes. Although he wrote nearly two million words, he did not carry the narrative beyond the late eighties. I have tried to tell the same story in its entirety in fewer than 70,000 words! Of necessity, great names have been omitted and significant events have been passed over. Still I believe that the main current of this dramatic narrative will be found on the pages which follow. I am indebted to various friends who have offered valuable suggestions and to many authors, living and dead, whose works I have consulted. Most of all, I am grateful to Miss Nellie B. Pipes of the Oregon Historical Society, and to Mr. Walter W. R. May of the Portland General Electric Company, who cheerfully and without a whimper undertook the thankless task of checking the manuscript. Richard
