About this title


This book paints a picture of the Forty-Ninth State that many will find surprising. Instead of inspirational home-steaders making the woods ring with their axes, there are dirt-poor Depression victims come to better their fortunes. Here fishing captains are more aggressive than courageous, and the cannery workers right out of the nineteenth century. The character types portrayed in the five tales are true to territorial days and those immediately following statehood -- a middleclass renegade, a novice deckhand, a farm boy, a workaholic skipper and a drunk, an escaped criminal. At the same time such personalities will always be with us, and the insights Mitchell offers are as fresh now as they were 'before the people came'.
