Columbia River Stories
Columbia River Stories follow a sequence of events that shaped the history of the Columbia River region. Historical fiction, based on factual events, and written for children, we begin the story cycle with Oregon coastal tribes in the 1780’s, journey on with the Corps of Discovery, travel the Oregon Trail with Pioneers, and finally, accompany Wasco Indian Children to Chemawa Indian Boarding School.
These stories were created by NE Portland Harvey Scott School students and teachers in collaboration with artist-educators of Earth Arts NW. Interwoven into required 4th and 5th grade humanities study, the stories are richly detailed, imaginative accounts of the diverse peoples whose lives joined in shaping the cultural history of the Columbia River. Appropriate and recommended for classroom use. (8.5x11", softcover, published 2007)
