About the Author

Roberta Ulrich is a retired newspaper reporter. She is the author of Empty Nets: Indians, Dams, and the Columbia River.

More About the Author

There is a saying that newspaper reporting is the first draft of history. After 50 years, more or less, of writing first drafts, I retired and turned to writing second drafts of history. The result has been two books: Empty Nets: Indians, Dams and the Columbia River, Oregon State University Press 2nd ed. 2007; and American Indian Nations from Termination to Restoration 1953-2006, University of Nebraska Press 2010. Although both revolve around federal Indian policies they rely heavily on my interviews with Indian tribal leaders and tribal members affected by those policies. I am not Indian but I have sought guidance from tribal people about the appropriateness of my work and offered to back away if some Native writer wanted to take on those subjects.

As for my background, I grew up in Eastern Washington, graduated from Washington State University, worked for newspapers in Pullman and Hoquiam, WA, and Clovis, NM, spent about 25 years with United Press International (which was still United Press in my first tour) and finished my career with the Oregonian of Portland, OR. I have lived in a suburb of POrtland for 43 years except for a 3 1/2 year assignment to Washington, DC. I have two sons, four grandchildren and one great grandchild. I like to hike, preferably when the Oregon rains let up or I am in North Idaho, where there is more sunshine.
