    One thought on “The Canoe and the Saddle: A Critical Edition”

    1. This book is historically significant and written in the archaic language of its time I read it for the stunning descriptions of the Pacific Northwest before the landscape was altered by civilization and modern development I also got an uncomfortable view of the racism prevalent in the authors own words and in the policies and practices of his peers Thank you for mentioning this old book, Timothy Egan, in The Good Rain.

    2. Published in 1853, this is certainly a historically significant narration of a voyage from the Olympic Peninsula to the Columbia River Gorge But the racism, environmental destruction, and ignorance from our narrator is a bit much for 21st century ears.

    3. An interesting and unique perspective on the northwest before many Euro Americans arrived Winthrop s attitudes, while likely representative of many Euro Americans of the time, were frustrating.
