About the Author:

Don Berry (1932-2001) considered himself a native Oregonian, although he was born in Minnesota, with a lineage from Fox Indians. After attending Reed College, where his housemates included poet Gary Snyder, who shared his interest in Eastern metaphysics, Berry began a lifetime of pursuing his many passions: playing down-home blues and composing synthesizer music, sumi drawing and painting, sculpting in bronze, exploring theoretical mathematics, and writing for prize-winning films. In addition to his three novels about the Oregon Territory, published in the early 1960s, Berry wrote A Majority of Scoundrels, a history of the Rocky Mountain fur trade. An early Internet pioneer, he also created a remarkable body of literature that exists now only in cyberspace.

Stephen Dow Beckham is Pamplin Professor of History at Lewis & Clark College and the author of such books as "Requiem for a People: The Rogue Indians and the Frontiersmen" and "Many Faces: An Anthology of Oregon Autobiography," Doug Erickson is Head of Special Collections, Jeremy Skinner is an assistant archivist, and Paul Merchant is an editorial assistant, all at Lewis & Clark College.
