SHANKO PEOPLE 1983
HELEN GUYTON REES
BINFORD & MORT PUBLISHERS
PORTLAND OREGON

Shanko stands apart from other small towns of Central Oregon because of the unique individuality of it's people who came to the area from seven counties and 10 states to seek their fortunes in the mushrooming city at the terminus of the first rail line (completed in 1900) into Oregon's vast interior.

 When wool was the King of Fibers, the lives of the townspeople provided services to the crowds of people who came to buy, sell, and transport the giant bags of shearlings. Carloads of sheep and cattle were shipped out from 20,000 square miles or Oregon's high desert.

Includes more than 50 interview with early timers, diary and journal entries.
