Land of the Umpqua












Return to the All About Douglas County Page

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.
