NEW REPRINT FROM BASALT BOOKS!
In the final act of the Northwest Boundary Dispute, a stray pig and a busted miner pushed Great Britain and the United States to the brink of war. From his San Juan Island camp in July 1859, future Confederate general George E. Pickett saw gun ports on British warships and knew it was time to summon help. This is Mike Vouri’s lively account of the Pig War crisis. Originally published by Discover Your Northwest.
