Oregon River Names

A link to an Oregonian article siting the sources of some of the names of rivers in Oregon caught my eye.

I highly recommend the book "Astoria" by Peter Stark. It describes how and why the first white mans eyes were set on most of these rivers and gives you detail about the pioneers personality and grit that a lot of the rivers in this region are named for.
