Synopsis: In 1913, the first shovelful of dirt was turned by Oregon Governor Oswald West on the Siskiyou Pass to mark the beginning of the construction of the long-dreamed-of Pacific Highway through Oregon. At the time, the whole State of Oregon had only 25 miles of paved road. Even after construction of the highway had begun, it was mainly dirt and gravel for quite some time. Federal money did not pour into the project until 1921. Until that time, it was up to the individual counties along the route to come up with the funding to build the roads through each of their areas. By its completion in 1926, however, it was adopted as U.S. Highway 99 and was declared the longest improved highway in the country by 1928. Actually, the history of the highway began long before 1913. This book will cover how the route for the Pacific Highway was determined through its use by trappers and miners and eventually stage lines and the railroad. But, just importantly, it will show how each of the settlements along its route were formed and grew into prospering cities, small rural communities and some that are now considered ghost towns. Join us on our journey through these communities as we wend our way north from the California border where the Pacific Highway first started from that shovelful of dirt. You'll learn about some of the interesting, but lesser-known, aspects of their histories and the people who were instrumental in making them what they are today.

About the Author: Pat Edwards is the author of two books on the history of her home community of Lorane, Oregon. The first, Sawdust and Cider; A History of Lorane, Oregon and the Siuslaw Valley, was written with co-authors Nancy O'Hearn and Marna Hing in 1987 to help celebrate the community's centennial. In 2006, Pat wrote a major revision of the book called From Sawdust and Cider to Wine. She and Jim have owned the Lorane Family Store since 1977 and will soon be celebrating their 50th year of ownership. Their family of five children have given them grandchidren and now great-grandchildren. Pat spent 15 years at the Institute of Neuroscience at the University of Oregon, many of those years working as the communication coordinator for a group of scientists who were doing landmark developmental biology and genetic research using the zebrafish, a hot new research model whose popularity had caught on internationally. Since then, Pat has taken on the role of Managing Editor for a small press publishing company called Groundwaters Publishing. It's main focus for over 10 years was to publish a local literary quarterly by the same name. By 2015, when the cost of printing it became too much, Pat and her co-editors began publishing the equivalent of 4 quarterly issues into one annual book format called the Groundwaters Anthology which is now available on-line at http://groundwaterspublishing.com. They also prepare books for self-publishing for themselves and for others. Pat also is the community correspondent for two small Lane County weeklies, the Fern Ridge Review and the Creswell Chronicle. "I'm blessed with a large, loving family. Jim and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary in 2014 and our family and home are our highest priorities." Check out Pat's personal website at: http://allthingslorane.com
