Atomic Geography
A Personal History of the Hanford Nuclear
Melvin R. Adams
I have spent a career sifting through the rubble, the abandoned
documents, the factories and tools, with the thought of saving what
remains of water, land, and animals. But water, wind, and root have
their way.Melvin R. Adams

Perhaps the first environmental engineer at Hanford, Melvin R.

Adams spent twenty-four years on its 586 square miles of desert
terrain. His thoughtful vignettes recall challenges and sites he
worked on or found personally intriguing, like the 216-U-pond.
Nestled among the trees, the pond looks like a pleasant place to
go fishing. In reality, it has been contaminated with plutonium
longer than any place on earth.

In what Adams considers his most successful project, he helped

determine the initial scope of the soil and solid waste cleanup.
The Environmental Restoration and Disposal Facility today
covers 107 acres and has a capacity of 18 million tons.

His group also designed and tested a marked, maintenancefree disposal barrier. It uses natural materials that will remain
stable for thousands of years. They expanded a network of
groundwater monitoring wells to define contaminated plumes,
assess treatment effectiveness, and provide relevant data to
hydrologists. They also developed a pilot scale pump and treatment plant for use on a four-square-mile
carbon tetrachloride plume.
His environmental and engineering unit included a biological control group fondly dubbed The Weeds.
They controlled tumbleweeds, tracked and collected plants and animals found growing or digging in
contaminated sites, and caught stray wildlife discovered in Hanford offices.
In Atomic Geography, Adams presents some surprising revelations. He shares his perspective on leaking highlevel waste storage tanks, dosimeters, and Hanfords obsession with safety. He even answers the question he
is asked most, insisting he does not glow in the dark. He leaves that unique ability to spent fuel rods in water
storage basinsa phenomenon known as Cherenkov radiation.
Melvin R. Adams has published two other books with WSU Press, both on southeastern Oregon: Netting
the Sun: A Personal Geography of the Oregon Desert and Remote Wonders: An Explorers Guide to Southeast Oregon.

Hop King
Ezra Meekers Boom Years
Dennis M. Larsen
Two of Ezra Meekers defining traits were his ability to
recognize business opportunities and his willingness to take
risks. In 1852, the Washington Territory pioneer traveled
west over the Oregon Trail, finally settling near Tacoma in the
Puyallup Valley.
In the mid-1860s, he planted his first hops, and despite wild
price fluctuations, attained modest success. Then he met beer
brewer Henry Weinhard and began selling to him directly.
Approximately twenty-five acres of hop roots led to $9,000 in
sales$154,000 today. Inspired, other farmers slowly joined
in, shipping produce to San Francisco.
Ezra served as a broker and traveled to New York and London
to open new markets. Convinced Northwest hops were
superior, he hired a respected chemist to analyze the quantity
of extract produced from Bavarian and New York hops as well
as his own. The results confirmed his claims.

Then in 1882, Meeker quietly bypassed California middlemen,

sending Washington hops directly to New York. That same
year, Pacific coast growers benefited from widespread crop
failure elsewhere. Desperate brewers offered astronomical
prices and Puyallup farmers were rich. E. Meeker and Co.
became the largest hops exporter in the country, and Ezra the official hop king.

Rarely idle, Meeker also managed a large family, became involved in philanthropy and development
schemes, promoted Washington and Puget Sound, was active in politics and womens suffrage, and tried to
manufacture sugar from beets. Impulsive and pugnacious, he was an intimidating business opponent who
became entangled in numerous lawsuits. Sadly, a combination of bad investments, lack of diversification, the
1893 depression, a financial betrayal, and an aphid plague brought Meekers boom years to a close.
In his newest book, Dennis M. Larsen recounts Ezra Meekers profitable years as well as the intertwined
histories of hops, Puyallup, and Washington Territory. An independent historian and former social studies
teacher, he has written for historical journals and is author/co-author of four other books. He speaks frequently
on the Oregon Trail, Northwest pioneers, and of course, Ezra Meeker.

Dividing the Reservation

Alice C. Fletchers Nez Perce Allotment
Diaries and Letters, 18891892
Nicole Tonkovich

Alice C. Fletchers Nez Perce Allotment Diaries and Letters


Alice Cunningham Fletcher was both formidable and remark

able. A pioneering ethnologist who penetrated occupations
dominated by men, she was the first woman to hold an
endowed chair at Harvards Peabody Museum of American
Archaeology and Ethnologyduring a time the institution did
not admit female students. She helped write the Dawes General
Allotment Act of 1887 legislation that reshaped American Indian
policy, and became one of the first women to serve as a federal
Indian agent, working with the Omahas, the Winnebagos, and
finally the Nez Perces.

Charged with supervising the daunting task of resurveying,

verifying, and assigning nearly 757,000 acres of the Nez
Perce Reservation, Fletcher also had to preserve land for
transportation routes and restrain white farmers and stockmen
who were claiming prime properties. She sought to give the
best lands to the best Indians, but was challenged by the Idaho
terrain, the complex ancestries of the Nez Perces, and her own
misperceptions about Native life. A commanding presence,
Fletcher worked from a specialized tent that served as home
and office, traveling with copies of laws, rolls of maps, and blank plats. She spent four summers on the project,
completing close to 2,000 allotments.

This book is a collection of letters and diaries Fletcher wrote during this work. Her writing illuminates her
relations with the key players in the allotment, as well as her internal conflicts over dividing the reservation.
Taken together, these documents offer insight into how federal policy was applied, resisted, and amended in
this early application of the Dawes General Allotment Act.
Nicole Tonkovich is Professor of Literature at the University of California, San Diego. Her research interests
center around nineteenth-century cultural productions by American women. She has published numerous
essays, and her books include The Allotment Plot: Alice C. Fletcher, E. Jane Gay, and Nez Perce Survivance and
Trading Gazes: Anglo-American Women Photographers among North American Indians.
Virtually none of the documentary sources for Dividing the Reservation exist electronically and only a small portion
had been unearthed by previous scholarly researchthis book is a genuine contribution.Dennis Baird, University
of Idaho professor emeritus

descriptions of individual lines, and the colorful personalities and urban
aspirations that eventually brought Seattle to the forefront of Washington

The Bridge of the Gods

A Romance of Indian Oregon
F. H. Balch with an introduction by Stephen L. Harris
Idealistic New England missionary Cecil Greys vision draws him 3,000 miles
west. Amazingly, he discovers the exact stone bridgetomanowoshe saw
in his dream. It is a creation of the gods, and legend says that as long as the
natural rock arch stands, the Willamettes will rule.
Confident, their chief Multnomah becomes a fierce and ruthless leader,
reigning over a network of Pacific Coast tribes from Mount Shasta to
todays British Columbia. But when an old Indian prophet warns of a
different future and Grey fatefully encounters Wallulah, Multnomahs gentle
daughter, tragedy follows.
Set in 1690s prehistoric Oregon, this regional classic was the first work
of fiction by a Northwest writer to feature Native Americans as main
characters. The Bridge of the Gods also evokes an extraordinary sense
of place, introducing readers to the Pacific Northwests primal forests,
untamed rivers, and volcanic peaks. A new introduction by Stephen L.
Harris offers interpretive content and a biography of the author.

The Washington State Penitentiary in Walla Walla was once a place where
the warden exercised absolute authority. Guards and prisoners called it
super custody. Then, in the early 1970s, well-meaning but nave reform
ignited chaos. Convicts abused their new freedomsroaring prisonmade choppers around the Big Yard, openly using drugs, and taking lives

A new superintendents dramatic actions curtailed the most dysfunctional

demanding a brutal crackdown and return to super custody.
As time passed, courts intervened, politics changed, and in 1981, a

Businessmen first and explorers second, these fur moguls risked lives and
capital as they gambled on the price of beaver pelts, purchases of ships
and trade goods, international commerce laws, and the effects of war.
They also quarreled, surveyed transportation routes, built trading posts,
and worked to forge relationships with trappers. As they lost valuable
natural resources and intermixed with other cultures, the regions native
peoples were significantly impacted.
Economically, the endeavors failed. Drawing from a reservoir of
previously unexploited correspondence, including the letters of clerk
Finnan McDonald and a revealing personal memorandum by Fort George
partner James Keith, the authors examine the era from a unique business



All for the Greed of Gold

Will Woodins Klondike Adventure
Edited by Catherine Holder Spude
When the Cleveland left Seattles docks in 1898, William Jay Woodin was
on board, chasing the centurys last great gold rush and hoping to earn
a fortune providing supplies. Enhanced with family photographs and
skillfully edited, Wills delightfully candid diaries, a short story, and 1910
memoir record the travails of his quest.
Unlike many stampeders, Wills party chose to travel both the White Pass
Trail and the Tutshi Trail, and his story offers a rare glimpse into this less
common route. Wills experiences also epitomize a mostly untold story of
how working-class men endured a grueling Yukon journey. He was part
of an emerging middle class who, with minimal formal education, left
farm life to seek urban employment. Whether packing tons of goods on
their own backs or building boats at the Windy Arm camp, Will brings to
light the cooperation and camaraderie necessary to survival.
