The literature of the Lewis and Clark expedition : a bibliography and essays by Stephen Dow Beckham( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 284 libraries worldwide
"Meriwether Lewis (1774-1809) and William Clark (1770-1838) helped determine a nation's destiny. Between 1803 and 1806 they led the Corps of Discovery, commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson, across the uncharted American West. Operating under a letter of instruction from Jefferson, they carried the concerns of the American Enlightenment to the sprawling interior of the continent." "Lewis and Clark recorded Indian vocabularies and culture, opened diplomatic relations with more than 50 tribes, collected botanical and zoological specimens, mapped the land, secured samples of minerals, and recorded temperature and weather data. They established U.S. military posts on the plains of North Dakota and at the mouth of the Columbia River, sites of their winter encampments of 1804-1805 and 1805-1806." "Lewis and Clark exhibited unerring leadership and fortitude in carrying out their complex mission. The success of their labors unleashed a flood of consequential events altering the course of a nation and undoing thousands of years of traditional lifeways of Native Americans. An eager world sought to share in their adventures. Their reports and other narratives about the expedition quickened interest in the American West, feeding the nation's fascination with exotic lands and cultures and fueling dreams of westward expansion."--Jacket

The adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi( Computer File )
in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The Adventures of Pinocchio is a novel for children by Italian author Carlo Collodi (here transl. by Carol della Chiesa). The first half was published in serial form between 1881 and 1883, and then completed as a book for children in February 1883. It is about the mischievous adventures of Pinocchio, an animated marionette, and his poor father, a woodcarver named Geppetto. It is considered a classic of children's literature and has spawned many derivative works of art, such as Disney's classic 1940 animated movie of the same name, and commonplace ideas, such as a liar's long nose
The Binfords & Mort Publishing Company and the development of regional literature in Oregon by Jeremy Skinner( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
During the first half of the twentieth century there was a flourishing of publishers in the United States that specialized in books with content targeted for regional audiences. One of the largest regional publishers west of the Mississippi was the Binfords & Mort publishing company of Portland, Oregon. In 1930, Binfords & Mort began publishing works of fiction, history, poetry, children's literature, and natural history by Pacific Northwest authors with content focused on the Pacific Northwest. Between 1930 and 1984, when the Binford family sold the publishing company, Binfords & Mort published around one thousand titles, and became a one of the leading influences on the Oregon literary scene. Although Binfords & Mort did not publish books that received widespread critical praise from national literary critics, its books sold well to Oregon readers. This thesis examines the economic and cultural contexts for Binfords & Mort, and its larger cultural impacts. The thesis also challenges the standard claim that Oregon literature underwent a major shift toward modernism after the publication of H.L. Davis's and James Stevens's critique of Oregon writing, Status Rerum in 1927. Instead, the thesis proposes that by looking at the output of Oregon's most popular publisher, Binfords & Mort, one finds that an older style of writing focused on the pioneer period continued to be popular well into the twentieth century. These publications had a widespread impact on Oregon's cultural development
