     Sources of the River, 2nd Edition: Tracking David Thompson Across North America
Publisher: Sasquatch Books
Author(s): Jack Nisbet

In this true story of adventure, author Jack Nisbet re-creates the life and times of David Thompson—fur trader, explorer, surveyor, and mapmaker. From 1784 to 1812, Thompson explored western North America, and his field journals provide the earliest written accounts of the natural history and indigenous cultures of the what is now British Columbia, Alberta, Montana, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. Thompson was the first person to chart the entire route of the Columbia river, and his wilderness expeditions have become the stuff of legend. Jack Nisbet tracks the explorer across the content, interweaving his own observations with Thompson?s historical writings. The result is a fascinating story of two men discovering the Northwest territory almost two hundred years apart.

Publisher: Picador
Author(s): Robert Clark

From glacial floods that began to shape the Columbia River twelve thousand years ago to its discovery, conquest, and colonization by the English, Spanish and Americans, the story of this river encompasses not only the full range of American history, but also a geography of myth, hope, and tragedy. Clark surveys the meaning and history of this great river running through the American imagination as well, while providing an unforgettable portrait of the people who lived an died on the Columbia's banks?conquered native peoples, European adventurers, New England missionaries, emigrants from the drought-ridden Midwest, and dreamers seduced by hydropowered New Deal promises of peace and prosperity.

     The Organic Machine: The Remaking of the Columbia River (Critical Issue Book)
Publisher: Hill and Wang
Author(s): Richard White

The Hill and Wang Critical Issues Series: concise, affordable works on pivotal topics in American history, society, and politics.

In this pioneering study, White explores the relationship between the natural history of the Columbia River and the human history of the Pacific Northwest for both whites and Native Americans. He concentrates on what brings humans and the river together: not only the physical space of the region but also, and primarily, energy and work. For working with the river has been central to Pacific Northwesterners' competing ways of life. It is in this way that White comes to view the Columbia River as an organic machine--with conflicting human and natural claims--and to show that whatever separation exists between humans and nature exists to be crossed.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Quiet streets, empty shops, broken windows, and silenced voices are just a few of the eerie characteristics of Canada's ghost towns.

This series "Roads to Nowhere in Canada's Ghost Towns" provides an alphabetical guide to the ghost towns of the provinces and includes the history of several of the towns.
Notable ghost towns and tourist attractions are also mentioned.

     Through the Brazilian Wilderness Or My Voyage Along the River of Doubt
Publisher: Wilder Publications
Author(s): Theodore Roosevelt

After losing his bid for the United States Presidency as a third party candidate, Theodore Roosevelt decided to take on the most dangerous adventure left on earth. He and his son, Kermit, accepted Candido Mariano da Silva Rondon's invitation to help him plot the course of the River of Doubt. The River of Doubt could just as easily have been named the River of Death. The river's rapids turned out to be much more ferocious than expected, cannibalistic natives dogged the group through most of the journey, and Murphy was their constant companion. The expedition lost men, supplies, and canoes. At one point, Roosevelt contracted a flesh-eating bacteria and became so weak that he urged his son to leave him behind to die. Ultimately Teddy and Kermit emerged from the wilderness triumphantly. Here is their story in Theodore Roosevelt's own words.

     Contested Empire: Peter Skene Ogden and The Snake River Expeditions
Publisher: University of Oklahoma Press
Author(s): John Phillip Reid

Do law and legal procedures exist only so long as there is an official authority to enforce them? Or do we have an unspoken sense of law and ethics?

To answer these questions, John Phillip Reid?s Contested Empire explores the implicit notions of law shared by American and British fur traders in the Snake River country of Idaho and surrounding areas in the early nineteenth century. Both the United States and Great Britain had claimed this region, and passions were intense. Focusing mainly on Canadian explorer and trader Peter Skene Ogden, Reid finds that both side largely avoided violence and other difficulties because they held the same definitions of property, contract, conversion, and possession.

In 1824, the Hudson?s Bay Company directed Ogden to decimate the furbearing animal population of the Snake River country, thus marking the region a �fur desert.? With this mandate, Great Britain hoped to neutralize any interest American furtrappers could have in the area. Such a mandate set British and American fur men on a collision course, but Ogden and his American counterparts implicitly followed a kind of law and procedure and observed a mutual sense of property and rights even as the two sides vied for control of the fur trade.

Failing to take legal culture into consideration, some previous accounts have depicted these conflicts as mere episodes of lawless frontier violence. Reid expands our understanding of the West by considering the unspoken sense of law that existed, despite the lack of any formalized authorities, in what had otherwise been considered a �lawless? time.
