His keen senses bode him well in the mountains and forests of the Pacific Northwest. Danger was not foreign to him; he lived with it everyday. Perhaps this is why an entire mining camp could count on him to go after supplies in the dead of winter. It would mean traveling from the valley over the rugged Ca..

Just as the big trees of the Pacific Northwest inspired the legend of Paul Bunyan, so did the Palouse Hills of southeastern Washington--where fantastic fields of wheat were raised on incredibly steep slopes--spawn tall tales about farmers, steamboat men, and the ingenious methods they used to get their grain to market. Though thirty-three-mule hitches and headers (whose downhill wheels were three times larger than the uphill ones) solved the harvesting problems, transporting ..
