UW Bothell Pub Night Talk at McMenamins will host R. Gregory Nokes as he discusses his new book, “Massacred for Gold: The Chinese in Hells Canyon” on July 31 at 7 p.m.

In 1887, a gang of horse thieves operating in northeaster Oregon plotted the robbery and murder of as many as 34 Chinese gold miners in Hells Canyon, in one of the most horrific crimes in the early American West. The crime was covered up for more than a century but its rediscovery set in motion a series of events that brought new attention to the mistreatment of Chinese miners and railroad builders in the Pacific Northwest.

Author and journalist, Nokes will be at Hayne’s Hall, McMenamins Anderson School, 18607 Bothell Way NE, Bothell. The event is open to the public.
