Linda Wunder Wall traces her family lineage and discovered that she has family ties to the Oregon Trail and well-known Baker County, Oregon ancestors.
Much like the quilt her ancestors began making more than 80 years ago, Linda Wunder Wall stitches together the pieces of her family’s past. From the Oregon Trail to her hometown of Baker City, Oregon, Linda reveals the less publicized history of the area, as experienced by her predecessors.
She exposes a legacy of strength and character of another time, and in the process of discovering her lineage, Linda uncovers gems of days gone by like the infamous San Francisco Madam, Sally Stanford, and her ties to the area. She revisits days when toys were made by hand and ducks were plucked for feather pillows.
Days when outlaws like the “Jingles Gang” were robbing and roaming and farmers were raising large families off the land. Linda’s ancestory is intertwined with her personal stories about her memorable past, about the distant past and about more current times. Her stories are at times witty, and at times heartwarming, but always entertaining, and like all good stories…there’s more to come!
