Format: Paperback
Terrific book by Washington-born Willard Espy of the Espy family who founded Oysterville. A wonderful, moving account of the Espy ancestors homesteading in the Columbia River Valley. Lush with detail. Not to be missed!

Remembering What's Been Lost 11 Mar 2007
By voraciousreader1 - Published on
Format: Paperback
Oysterville is now a tiny village on the Long Beach peninsula in Washington state, but at one time it was a classic boomtown. Mr. Espy is a superb writer, and this book is a tribute to his family and indeed all pioneers.
