Columbia River Gorge: Pocket Portfolio Series
"The Columbia River has been used by Native Americans for 15,000 years, but it wasn't until 1792 that the river was officially "discovered" by whites. American Naval Captain Robert Gray was the first to enter the river, naming it after his ship the Columbia Redeviva; weeks later, Lieutenant Broughton of the British Vancouver expedition sailed as far as modern-day Portland and named Mount Hood after his vice admiral."
