Between 1840 and 1870, thousands of women arrived in the Pacific Northwest by way of the Oregon Trail. This migration was a life-changing experience, consuming the longest time and widest distance these women would travel to establish homes and farms for themselves and their families. This book presents quilts as documents of the history of women. (184pp. color illus. Schiffer Books, 2007.)
