A Story of the town of Lake Oswego, Oregon's early settlers, who planned a great iron industry and a "Pittsburght of the West" at the site, on the Willamette River and the Proposed Iron Empire of the West
Biography
"Oregon in the mid-19th century was the place and time for large dreams, especially the fertile Willamette Valley. Here you will read of the discovery of iron deposits and building the first iron smelter; of Indians who roamed the shores of the Tualatin and Waluga, now Oswego Lake; of the desperate journey down the Barlow Trail and the staking of pioneer claims; and the present resort style living around the beautiful lake."

"Mary Goodall, a long-time resident of Oswego, is a Portland newspaper woman of pioneer family. She originated the Mary Cullen Department of the Oregon Journal, and has contributed many articles to newspapers and magazines."

Quotes excerpted from flyleaf. Local history re: Lake Oswego and Willamette area, includes historic photographs.
