    In Their Footsteps

    Filling Her Shoes: Amazing Women of the Northwest and Beyond

    Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, Fort Clatsop is pleased to announce the next installment of its In Their Footsteps free speakers series.   The program is Filling Her Shoes:  Amazing Women of the Northwest and Beyond by Jane Kirkpatrick on Sunday, March 16 at 1:00 p.m. in the Netul River Room of the Fort Clatsop visitor center. 
    New York Times Best-Selling Author Jane Kirkpatrick will speak about the power of one person to make a difference in the lives of others as evidenced by lesser known historical women.  Emma Giesy, one of the early participants in the communal society of Aurora, began her Northwest life in Washington's Willapa Bay area. Jane Sherar left large shoes to fill as a woman operating Sherar House with her husband along the Deschutes River of Central Oregon living well with her neighbors, the Wasco, Warm Springs and Paiute people. Hulda Klager emigrated from Germany by way of Wisconsin to find her footsteps among lilacs at the confluence of the Lewis and Columbia Rivers. Their stories and more grant us insight into the pioneer spirit that we're allowed to carry in our hearts.
    Jane’s books that feature these women will be available for purchase and signing following her presentation.
    This third Sunday forum is sponsored by the Lewis and Clark National Park Association and the National Park Service.  These programs are held in the Netul River Room of Fort Clatsop’s visitor center and are free of charge.
    For more information, call the park at (503) 861-2471.
