Abstract:

In 1842-43, farmers in areas on the border of the unsettled west were seized with "Oregon fever" and began to emigrate to tohe fertile regions of the Oregon territory, at that time jointly occupied by a few British and American settlers and fur traders. In June 1846, the lands south of the 49th degree of north latitude now comprising the states of Washington, Oregon, and parts of Idaho and Montana were formally recognized by Great Britain as part of the United States, but three or four years before theh treaty American emigrants were convinced that the United States would take over the territory and they were eager to stake their claims early. One of the most articulate emigrants was the author whose account of that journey was published into this book.
