Book Signing & Discussion with Dr. Jerry Ramsey

This event has been postponed until further notice.

DuPont History Museum

207 Barksdale Avenue, DuPont

In his book, Stealing Puget Sound: 1832-1869, author Dr. Jerry Ramsey exposes the political tension between the first British settlers and the American pioneers who crossed the Oregon Trail 15 years later.  The author spent years researching this subject, combing through letters and journals of the time and traveling the West Coast, from California to Canada, to collect and confirm facts.  The book is comfortably readable but challenges "politically correct" history.

Copies of Stealing Puget Sound will be available at this event for purchase and signing.
