Frederick Taylor, a native Oregonian, spent 30 years as a reporter and editor with The Wall Street Journal, the last 14 as managing editor and then executive editor. As a reporter he wrote many of the long, front-page stories that have made The Journal famous. For 10 years after his retirement there he published and edited a weekly newspaper in Coquille, Oregon. He became interested in Sacagawea’s son, Jean Baptiste Charbonneau, when he discovered that, although Pomp lived a long, exciting life, he’d been only the subject of essays. Taylor thought he deserved more.
This book contains what he found.
Taylor lives with his wife, Georga, on the Southern Oregon coast.
