Blanchet came west to Oregon and Washington in the 1830's, responding to a call for missionaries to the tribes in the territories, and to minister to the Canadians who had settled there. This book is his first-hand account of his experiences and those of other intrepid pioneers in the Northwest. (Summary by Carol Pelster)

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process unless you are the BC or PL. Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

MW coming up.

edit: I shortened the filename. Long ones cause problems and it just has to be unique. We have no other books by this author in our catalog. I also changed the book link to the online e-text. The DPL can find links to the pdf on that page. Do you have someone in mind as DPL or should we advertise?

Hi Carol,

4 is PL OK!

Just a heads up that you repeated the link to 3 in the spot for 4. I just renamed it, since 4 was indeed uploaded. :-)
