Synopsis: Set in 1848 on the wild edge of the continent, in the rain forests and rugged headlands of the Oregon coast Trask follows a mountain man's quest for new opportunities and new land to settle. The OSU Press is proud to reissue Berry's celebrated first book, considered one of the finest historical novels of the American West.
About the Author: Don Berry considered himself a native Oregonian, despite the fact that 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 (Trask, Moontrap, and To Build a Ship), 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.
Married with three children, Don Berry died at age 70 in 2001.
