Sinclair, B. W. (n.d.). Big Timber. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Chapter 1. GREEN FIELDS AND PASTURES NEW The Imperial Limited lurched with a swing around the last hairpin curve of the Yale canyon. Ahead opened out a timbered valley,?narrow on its floor, flanked with bold mountains, but nevertheless a valley,?down which the rails lay straight and shining on an easy grade. The river that for a hundred miles had boiled and snarled parallel to the tracks, roaring through the granite sluice that cuts the Cascade Range, took a wider channel and a leisurely flow. The mad haste had fallen from it as haste falls from one who, with time to spare, sees his destination near at hand; and the turgid Fraser had time to spare, for now it was but threescore miles to tidewater. So the great river moved placidly?as an old man moves when all the headlong urge of youth is spent and his race near run.
