"These are survivors of a treacherous stretch of Washington highway named "Chumstick"
In the pidgin trade jargon of mid-nineteenth century Washington and British Columbia. All current residents of Omaha, NE who braved the highway to reach the famed Wenatche river. Home of the infamous Colleen Erker- once known to have single handedly provoked a Black Bear to consume her, only to elude her attacker through guile and the divine intervention of "Dan Jake,"a rare man-dog combination."
