An image from our first edition copy of Washington Irving’s Astoria (1836) was used for an Outside Online post: An excerpt from a new book about the legendary Overland Party attempts to establish America’s first commercial colony on the wild and unclaimed Northwest coast. The book, Astoria: John Jacob Astor and Thomas Jefferson’s Lost Pacific Empire, a Story of Wealth, Ambition, and Survival  by Peter Stark was released this month from HarperCollins. The image was also used in the book.
