Oysterville is the magnificently told tale of four families who settled up and down the East Coast of America three centuries ago and subsequently migrated west, eventually arriving at the tiny settlement of Oysterville on the Pacific coast in the territory of Washington.

From the Back Cover:

Oysterville is the magnificently told tale of four families who settled up and down the East Coast of America three centuries ago and subsequently migrated west. From Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Kentucky, they trundled their Conestoga wagons across the prairies, unaware that destiny would eventually bring them to a coast overlooking the North Pacific Ocean, where their genes would commingle in the tiny settlement of Oysterville in the territory of Washington.

Drawing on conversations with elderly relations and friends and on historic letters and documents, Willard Espy affectionately reconstructs his own personal past to give us a rich and revealing account of this family that was born, grew up, and died as the United States itself was being shaped and formed, explored, and expanded.
