When I started the Trail To Oregon, the research and thousands of facts and depressing incidents was almost overpowering. Getting into the wagons with them, fording the Rivers and walking barefoot with them was a struggle. They were sleeping in wagons laden with food and furniture, children and clothing, guns and forgotten belongings buried under blankets and animal feed. Their lives were fragile and the perils from nature and other men cost the lives of ten percent of all the travelers as they struggled from Missouri to Oregon. I wondered at first what kind of story I could extract from the bare facts, from the perilous threat the pilgrims presented to each other. But the courage of the men and women that walked across the states barefoot, that starved and bled and struggled, told me their stories as I searched their dark sunken eyes. They were possibly the bravest Americans very much like the men that fought alongside General Washington except the bravery and courage was shared by the women that shouldered most of the work. I was drawn into the struggle and felt the anguish when their children died, when a woman was accidentally shot. When mothers chewed leaves from the trees and fed the food to their husbands and children. Their tattered clothes hung like potato sacks on gaunt bodies long before Oregon was in sight as they clutched their rifles and bibles praying for the strength and endurance to survive and keep the children alive. Wooden crosses dotted the trail where weak, sick and unfortunate souls succumbed to sickness, accidental shootings, and the treacherous River crossings. The overland trail to Oregon was not for the meek or faint of heart, even the healthy and robust found prayer a necessity to bolster their strength for the months it took to reach Oregon. Come and share their courage, walk with us.

Some of the finest military warbirds in American aviation history are still flying in the West Coast State of Oregon. Many of them are on display in a number of excellent air museums, or they have been mounted on pylons to stand as memorials to the many military aviators who called Oregon home. This handbook is designed to provide aviation enthusiasts with a simple locating guide on where to find a good number of these incredible flying machines within the state. Many of the aircraft can be found in the Tillamook Naval Air Station Museum; the Evergreen Aviation Museum at McMinnville; in the Oregon Air & Space Museum at Eugene; with the Oregon Military Museum at Clackmas; or in the hands of private owners and collectors. The handbook provides photographs of many of the aircraft preserved in Oregon, along with a brief description and history of its service within the US armed forces. The aircraft are listed alphabetically by manufacturer, number and aircraft type. Famous aircraft found on display in Oregon include the gigantic Hughes HK-1 Flying Boat (also known as the Spruce Goose), and a number of very rare warbirds not found in many other museums.

The number of Hispanics living in Oregon has burgeoned over the past several decades. The number of Spanish-speaking churches in the state has also grown exponentially. However, most non-Hispanic Oregonians know very little about the Hispanic population. This lack of knowledge about Latinos, and about Hispanic ministries specifically, is found among academics and Anglo Protestants alike. This book is the result of my desire to provide information that will serve as a bridge between Spanish-speaking and English-speaking churches and facilitate understanding between groups in the broader population, and provide a well-documented study for the academy.
