OSU PRESS LAUNCHES NEW BOOK
The Oregon State University Press will celebrate the publication of "To Harvest, To Hunt: Stories of Resource Use in the American West," at 7 p.m. Dec. 13 at the Looking Glass Bookstore, 7983 SE 12th Ave., in Portland.
To Harvest, To Hunt reveals how diverse peoples have valued and used natural resources throughout the history of the American West. Drawing on family letters, oral traditions, historical records, and personal experience, contributors to the book offer readers new perspectives on the land they live on, the harvests they consume, and the natural resources they manage. These essays weave a tapestry of cultures and voices from Pueblo tribes in the Southwest and Chinese fisherman in California to Mexican braceros in Oregon and Basque sheepherders in Idaho as they detail the region*s historical dependence on the land and sea.
Joining editor Judy Li, a retired OSU professor, at Looking Glass will be contributor David Hatch, a former Tribal Council member of the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians, and a 2001 Buffett Award Finalist for his efforts to restore the sea otter to the Oregon coast. Other contributors to the book include John Bieter, Dolly Garza, Erlinda Gonzales-Berry, Steven W. Hackel, Deanna Kingston, Jim LeMonds, Irene Martin, David Mas Masumoto, Margaret Mathewson, John Nichols, Patti
Sakurai, and Charles Wilkinson.
