Salt Lake City: University of Utah Press, 1987. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. "Between approximately 1905 and 1915, more than 1200 homesteaders were drawn to - and tried desperately to make a living in - the formidable and remote high desert country of little rain and short growing seasons in Lake County, south-central Oregon. By the 1920s, most of them had given up and left, abandoning their homes and letting the sagebrush desert take over again." Numerous textual illustrations and maps. Octavo.
