One thought on “The Oregon Desert

  1. Steven Howes

    I had seen this book many times, was attracted by the cover, and purchased it a number of years ago I finally got around to reading it and was not disappointed The book contains a number of chapters focusing on the natural and social history of the Oregon High Desert The authors E.R Jackson and R.A Long were a county extension agent and local rancher respectively and both had a great deal of practical knowledge of the ecology and history of this part of Oregon They share their knowledge through [...]

    This book was written in the 1960s, the authors lived their lives in the Oregon desert The book has stories and quite a bit of opinion the photos are a great addition I didn t find it to be easy to read, it wasn t set up well and there wasn t a good flow The information and opinion is dated I found the Jackman sections easier to read than Long s.

  3. Rebecca

    This is not a book it is a journal of wisdom about the southeastern Oregon high desert by those who have thrived there The first half is a personal history of the land and here Reuben Long is a master, with an easy temperament the other guy adores the platitude The back half are indices of locally adopted Mexican ranch words, pictures and descriptions of flowers, geology and wildlife, and maxims organized like the book of quotations, around subjects like coffee It was in this back half that I re [...]

  4. Jodi

    I love this book It is written by two men from southeastern oregon, and they talk about all sorts of things about the area from plants, to people, to history, to being cowboys, to geology Being a horticulturist and growing up in this area I especially enjoyed where he talks about the plants When he talks about junipers it makes me laugh, especially since most people in the area have a grudge these days against junipers While people think the southeastern oregon is not that pretty especially comp [...]

  5. Lynne

    Written by friends and colleagues ER Jackman and Reub Long, this book is part geography, part geology, part history, part homespun tales of the early settlement days of desert homesteaders, among other things It is mostly entertaining, rarely dull, and always bursting with information on that part of Oregon about which most people know very little A valuable resource for anyone interested in the other Oregon.

  6. Carol

    Even though this book was written many years ago, I found it an interesting blend of natural science, humor and scholarly prose The description of the Oregon desert stands and meets today s changes A book sure to interest anyone living in or near the region.

  7. Darrel

    This is a description of Eastern Oregon in the early days when people first came into the country Lots of horses, cattle,failing farmers, wildlife, interesting people and their stories What it isn t any.

  8. Chuck Bradley

    Great account of early eastern Oregon by an old desert rat Jackman Long building at state fairgrounds name for him and Long an OSU prof.

  9. SadieKate

    Fascinating in some ways Very poorly edited Must be read with an eye to the times due to the folksy, and some times bigoted, tone However, a lot of information on Eastern Oregon.
