Return to the All About Douglas County
Land of the Umpqua, by Stephen Dow Beckham, is a study of the
history of Douglas County, Oregon. The human experience in the
Umpqua region has mirrored the major themes in the historical
development of the American West. This self-contained watershed
in southwestern Oregon was first the homeland of diverse Indian
groups and then was explored and exploited by adventurers by land
and by sea in the late 1700's and the early 1800's. The history
examines economic development, cultural institutions, the role of
the federal government, Indian-white relations, settlement,
community development, living conditions, and the demographic
patterns of the population of the region.
