About the Book

Coos Bay Shanghai, an adult book, is a story about a pioneer family that settled in the Coos Bay, Oregon area. Their mode of transportation is mainly by boat and they ship their commodities through Rock's Dock at Empire City. They experience many problems, including Slim's thievery, a fire that tears at their heartstrings but has its rewards, the loss of their daughter Terisa, and disaster that wipes them out financially.

About the Author

Russell was born in The Dalles, Oregon in 1922. Upon the demise of her husband George, she moved to Arizona to be near her daughter. For the want of something to do, and with 'twenty billion choices,' out there, she decided to write. Her first book is entitled Rachel's Goat and she was awarded a signed contract on her first submission. She then hurriedly wrote Nikki, Rooster & Chick-a-Biddy and both books, including Coos Bay Shanghai are available under on the internet. Rachel's Goat and Coos Bay Shanghai are available in bound form at your favorite bookstore. Russell is the offspring of a Coos Bay, early pioneer family. In writing Coos Bay Shangai, she made a particular effort to conceal the identity of her characters so that only the family members would recognize them. And yes, the fish really did jump into the boat.
