    As rewards for donors, I'm offering signed book copies--of "Before Portland" when it's published in 2018, and signed copies of my other books (selection up to the donor). I can send copies of books in print after the Kickstarter campaign is over. "Before Portland" should be available some time in 2018. Rewards as follows:
    $120-249: THE BOOK, when published, signed by me (estimated list price $60)
    $250-499: two books, signed. "Chinookan Peoples..." would be a good companion volume to "Before Portland..."
    $500-799: three books, signed. The "trifecta" of books on Chinookan peoples ("People of the Dalles," "Chinookan Peoples of the Lower Columbia," and "Before Portland..." when published) would be a good selection here!
    $800-1200: four books, signed. In addition to the three Chinookan books, my other two are "The Coming of the Spirit of Pestilence: introduced infectious diseases and population decline among Northwest Coast Indians, 1774-1874, " and "Indians, Fire, and the Land in the Pacific Northwest" (editor). Both came out in 1999 and are still in print.
    Check our my author's website (roberttboyd.com) for details on these books, as well as a summary of work completed to date on "Before Portland." And then, if you can, make a contribution so that this remarkable forgotten history and culture can be introduced, once again, to the present inhabitants of Portland!
