Horse Camping
[Revised Edition]
George Hatley
Photographs by Lewis Portnoy
Introduction by Juli S. Thorson
Horse camping has long been part of Pacific Northwest
lore. The Nez Perce used horses as transportation, and
frontier fur trappers also loaded and rode the animals.
The journals of these mountain men often contain glowing accounts of their nomadic lifestyle and exhibit a profound appreciation of their surroundings. Today, people
still long to experience pristine wilderness and enjoy the
simple pleasures nature offers. Pack trips allow individuals of many ages and physical
abilities to reach glorious backcountry they would never see otherwise.
George Hatley has a deep connection to the region and its early pioneers. As a
boy, he learned that his great uncle had been involved in the Misery Hill scrimmage
of the Nez Perce war, and that the Native Americans were riding Appaloosas. He
listened to his grandfather recount his Palouse country arrival by wagon train in 1877,
describing a beautiful expanse with stirrup-high grass waving in the wind like ocean
surf. But the grand prairie sea became farmland, and so during harvest season, young
George was fascinated by teams of 33 horses pulling combines. He eventually became
a cattle rancher and trail guide, indulging both his adventurous spirit and his passion for horses by leading numerous camping trips amid the Northwest’s magnificent
mountains and canyons.
Originally released in 1981 and again in 1992, George Hatley’s common-sense
manual is considered a classic. In his amiable, practical voice, he shares both
­successes and oversights, and reveals observations and experiences from years as
an ­out­fitter. He covers trip planning, horses, tack, gear, food, and other aspects of
advanced preparation. He discusses horse hauling and packing for the journey.
Finally, he provides information about setting out on the trail, establishing a site,
and life in camp. This new WSU Press edition has been skillfully updated by
Juli S. Thorson, Editor and Associate Publisher of Horse & Rider magazine.

Women’s Votes,
Women’s Voices

The Campaign for Equal Rights
in Washington
Shanna Stevenson
The right of citizens to vote is a pillar of democracy—
a mainstay denied to Washington women until they
united in a campaign to enact change. Suffragettes
briefly achieved the right to vote through an 1883
legislative act, only to have a Territorial Supreme
Court decision declare it invalid. Once again, women
formed clubs and embarked on a grassroots crusade.
They canvassed neighborhoods, circulated petitions, published a newspaper, conducted debates, sold a cookbook, participated in fairs, and more. Finally, in 1910,
suffragettes persuaded Washington men to ratify a state constitutional amendment
granting permanent voting rights for women, only the fifth state to do so. Their
success revitalized the national movement, inspiring activists struggling toward
another pivotal goal, the passage of the Nine­teenth Amendment to the United States
Constitu­tion. Approved in 1920, the revision secured voting rights for women across
the country.
But the story does not end there. Woman suffrage was a harbinger of social change.
Females enrolled in higher education in record numbers, became more directly
involved in community affairs, and increasingly joined such professions as social
work, medicine, and architecture. By 1910, women dominated the office workplace,
comprising 83 percent of typists and stenographers.
Since gaining the vote, female Washingtonians have regularly exercised their
voice in gov­ernment—addressing the concerns of women, chil­dren, and families,
and continuing to strive for equal rights.
Women’s Votes, Women’s Voices provides a comprehensive summary of the
Washington woman suffrage movement and presents vignettes on many of the
state’s most active leaders, such as May Arkwright Hutton and Emma Smith
DeVoe, along with numerous illustrations.
Author Shanna Stevenson is a historian living in Olympia, Washington, and coordinator
of the Washington Women’s History Consortium project.

RECENT RELEASES
Slick as a Mitten

Ezra Meeker’s Klondike Enterprise
Dennis M. Larsen
Ezra Meeker braved the Oregon Trail in 1852 and accumulated a fortune in the Puyallup hop-growing business.
Suddenly, at the dawn of the new century, he lost his
wealth, and despite his advanced age, ventured to Alaska
and the treacherous Klondike. Four years of letters, most
from Ezra to his beloved wife Eliza Jane, relay the details
of his risky scheme to transport and sell more than 60
tons of groceries to Yukon gold miners.

Reginald Heber Thomson recognized the fledgling city’s potential. Throughout the following
