One of the state's most spectacular scenic regions, Oregon's southern coast is also rich in history. Fur trade explorer Jedediah Smith, Coos Indian Annie Miner Peterson, lumber baron Louis Simpson, and writer Zane Grey are just a few of the fascinating individuals who helped shape South Coast history. This indispensable guide and reference work opens with an overview of South Coast history, from prehistory to the present. This first section presents in-depth looks at the region's native peoples, early exploration, white settlement, Indian-white warfare, the forest industry, transportation, and town development. The second section follows the route taken along the South Coast in 1828 by Jedidiah Smith, one of the foremost explorers of the American West. It describes key historic sites from the California/Oregon border to Heceta Head. Drawing on journal entries, the author traces the advance of Smith's expedition, and recounts its troubled relations with coastal Indians and its tragic ending.
