About this title

Synopsis:

In his journal Brackenridge "gives us a vivid picture of the great plains of the West, clad in their summer verdure, with vast herds of wild animals giving a touch of vitality to the lonely scenes. His descriptions of the marvelous atmospheric effects, and the wide expanses of sky and plain, are the product of one who possessed keen enthusiasm for wilderness landscape..." Franchere's narrative is a personal account of the early settlement of the Oregon Territory by John Jacob Astor, of the discovery of the Columbia basin, of the founding of Astoria, of its sale to the Northwest Company, and of its seizure as a British conquest. "...it is, in fact, the only account by an eyewitness and a participator in the enterprise, of the first attempt to form a settlement on the Pacific under the stars and stripes."
