Mental Territories by Katherine G. Morrissey

Book Description

Rarely recognized outside its boundaries today, the Pacific Northwest region known at the turn of the century as the Inland Empire included portions of the states of Washington and Idaho, as well as British Columbia. Katherine G. Morrissey traces the history of this self-proclaimed region from its origins through its heyday. In doing so, she challenges the characterization of regions as fixed places defined by their geography, economy, and demographics. Regions, she argues, are best understood as mental constructs, internally defined through conflicts and debates among different groups of people seeking to control a particular area's identity and direction. She tells the story of the Inland Empire as a complex narrative of competing perceptions and interests.

Covered Wagon Women by Katherine G. Morrissey Covered Wagon Women, Paperback (February 2000)

The restless westering impulse of Americans created one of the most enduring figures in the frontier pantheon. Undeterred by storms, ruthless bandits, towering mountains, and raging epidemics, the women in this title suggest why the pioneer represented the highest ideals and aspirations of a young nation.
