Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

"Historical adventure of the highest order. Mr. Gulick has gifted us with writing as mighty as the river itself in its own enchanted way." -- Max Evans, author of Bluefeather Fellini

Through the Cascades is the second volume of Roll On, Columbia, Bill Gulick's epic novel of the history of the Columbia River and the Great Northwest.

Encompassing the period from the 183 Os to the early 1870s, Through the Cascades follows the adventures of several more generations of the growing Warren clan. Steamboat captains Tom and his son, Lars, migrate up the Columbia River Basin to meet new challenges and explore new regions of the Great Northwest. As the story moves upriver, the reader is introduced to new characters, events, and environments. The journey is highlighted by whitewater trips through some of the regions most notorious rapids, including the Columbia River Gorge, and the Snake River's Hell's Canyon. The harrowing trip of the emigrants into the Columbia Basin via the Oregon Trail and the treacherous Barlow Road is relived in terrifying detail. Equally riveting is Gulick's account of the Yakima Indian War, led by the noble and reluctant Chief Kamiakin. All the major tributaries, including the Willamette, the Deschutes, the Palouse, and the Snake, are explored as gold is found to the east and cattle ranching is established in the upper basin.

The second volume of the most comprehensive historical novel ever written on the Columbia River and the Great Northwest, Roll On, Columbia: Through the Cascades flows like the river itself, blending the often chaotic events of the time with the Warren family history. The Native Americans, steamboat captains, mountain men, fur-trappers, soldiers, gold-seekers, and European immigrants all come alive in this dramatic story. This volume is a shining example of the best of historical fiction and will entertain readers with the rich history of the American Northwest.
