265 pp, 9 1/4" H. Map endpapers, b&w illustrations, tables. "(P)rovides the first comprehensive history of the agricultural development of the Oregon Country. Based on extensive research in primary source materials including Hudson's Bay Company documents, missionary records, and military and private papers, (this book) traces the crucial transition of the Pacific Northwest from a fur-trading outpost to an agricultural settlement - a process which also saw the shift from British to American jurisdiction in the area. Gibson explores the reasons for the development of farming, describes the localities where farming took place, and discusses the degree of its success or failure, placing particular emphasis on geographical factors such as terrain, climate, and soil type. The statistical material he has compiled adds a quantitative dimension to his findings and presents important new information about the fur trade west of the Rockies." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor edge wear. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine, one small tear and two tiny tears archivally taped.
