Gregory Nokes 6/15

 

 

Gregory Nokes presents his newest book, The Troubled Life of Peter Burnett: Oregon Pioneer and First Governor of California. Nokes, a journalist, is known for his courageous works on hidden or little-known pieces of Oregon’s history. His previous books, Breaking Chains: Slavery on Trial in the Oregon Territory and Massacred for Gold: The Chinese in Hells Canyon, are both eye-opening pieces on parts of our state's history that we aren't proud of but need to know about and remember. This biography of a complicated historical character promises to be just as interesting and revealing.
