Astoria by Peter Stark
Astoria is the thrilling, true-adventure tale of the 1810 Astor Expedition, an epic, now forgotten, three-year journey to forge an American empire on the Pacific Coast. Peter Stark offers a harrowing saga in which a band of explorers battled nature, starvation, and madness to establish the first American settlement in the Pacific Northwest and opened up what would become the Oregon trail, permanently altering the nation’s landscape and its global standing.
Join us for our next book club meeting on March 15 at 7:00pm in the Library Board Room. You can pick up a copy of the book at the Corvallis Library 2nd floor Reference Desk.
