Tribal Histories of the Willamette Valley Book Events

The Book, Tribal Histories of the Willamette Valley, is out now, published, and available to buy on most large retailers on the internet. The publication date was November 14th, 2023 and is available in paperback ($23.95) and kindle ($8.99). Various stores have deals which may lower the price a few dollars.
The Ooligan Press site is a good place to go to see the reviews and a summary of the book, and my bio.
I love the image Greg Robinson (Chinook) created, not specifically for the book but clearly related to some content. Many people are very appreciative of the art.
Ooligan press has been very helpful, and I had a full schedule of events this past month and a half

While the sales are going well on the internet with big sellers, Independent Bookstores are not offering the book yet. Oh a few do, Tsunami (Eugene, and Powells (Portland) has it, and I have heard Book Bin in Corvallis may, but many independent sellers are not offering the book yet, perhaps waiting to see sales rankings before ordering it. It has only been two weeks and I have heard it takes at least a month for many stores to get it. Most stores will do an order for you if you need their help
In previous years, I have offered blog subscribers a bonus when the book is published. The going price of the book is 24.95 for the paperback, I will send you a signed copy if you send me $25 + $5 shipping using Venmo (@David-Lewis-580)= $30. Send me a note with your address when you pay to – Each order will be sent out within a day or two of the payment. You can also send a check to David Lewis, 1194 37th PL NE, Salem, OR 97301.
