about

Douglas County, Oregon, stretches west from Crater Lake and the forested peaks of the Cascades until it reaches the shores of the Pacific in a tumult of rolling sand dunes. In this account, author R.J. Guyer recalls the frontier spirit and creative industry that shaped this land of one hundred valleys. Enjoy stories of Lookingglass’s two-horse parking meter and Boswell Springs’ cure-all mineral waters. Celebrate Reedsport’s Olympic gold medalist and Oakland’s one-time claim as turkey capital of the world. Remember the devastation of the Roseburg blast and the triumph of the Drain Black Sox’s win in the National Baseball Conference World Series. From the establishment of the county to the preservation of historic landmarks, Guyer shares the rich heritage of Douglas County’s communities.
