Reviews: "What a fun read. I realized that this could have been written by most people whose parents and grandparents truly settled the northwest. The story of the migration from the midwest, and south reminded me of the tales that my parents and siblings had while coming west from the Dakotas. It should be a reminder to all of us to tap the resources for memories that are available only when parents and grandparents are still living. After all, if these gems aren't written down somewhere, they are simply gone."
