Massacred for Gold: The Chinese in Hells Canyon

Book Discussion Massacred Gold | Video | "R. Gregory Nokes talked about his book, Massacred for Gold: The Chinese in Hells Canyon, in which he recounts the events of the massacre from when the bodies were first discovered to the subsequent trial of six men and boys over a year later. During this time, witnesses admitted to have little interest in convicting anyone for crimes against Chinese immigrants and they were found not guilty by a jury. A cover-up followed and the massacre was soon forgotten over the next 100 years until a Wallowa County clerk found the hidden records in an unused safe."
