Going back nearly a century ten different ferries have plied the waters between Cathlamet and Puget Island, Washington, and Westport, Oregon. Author Jim Aalberg explains the history of the last ferry still operating on the mighty Columbia River. Jim has dedicated a new appendix to the history of the ferry in his recently revised and expanded book, Westport Oregon Home of the Big Sticks and Gold Medal Salmon, now in its third printing.
