"In this book I propose to visit the Upper Rogue River in southern Oregon during the period 1927-1937. The time and the place are now gone forever. The reader can experience them only through the eyes of those who were there, and we . . . did not then have the attitudes, standards, and perceptions that prevail today." Preface, p. xii.
