Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.
I got two books with an Oregon pioneer theme:
Honey in the Horn by H. L. Davis, with a new introduction by Richard W. Etulain. This classic coming of age novel won the Pulitzer Prize in 1936 and is the only Oregon book to ever win the Pulitzer for fiction.
At the Hearth of the Crossed Races: A French-Indian Community in Nineteenth-Century Oregon, 1812-1859 by Melinda Marie Jette. This looks like a fascinating social history of the French-Indian families, indigenous peoples, and Anglo-American settlers adjusting to life together in what is now Oregon's Willamette Valley and was then called the French Prairie.
