Tree Soldier and the CCC Boys of the Pacific NW

Have you ever heard of Camp Columbia north of Walla Walla? Or Camp Ginkgo where CCC boys made trail and built Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park? A camp at Lewiston? All these places are living examples of work by young men enrolled in the Civilian Conservation Corps. Janet Oakley, local historian and writer, has published a novel entitled Tree Soldier: A Novel of Love, Forgiveness, and the Great Depression. She will give a talk on the research behind the story and read from her novel. Books will available for sale.
