Kevin Carson

Kevin Carson is a researcher, author, and story teller who specializes in the history of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. His book, The Long Journey of the Nez Perce, is described by Washington State Magazine as telling the story “with immediacy and fascinating analysis.”

Combining a lifelong interest in military history, tactics, and the stories of those caught up in desperate struggles, Kevin draws upon personal and family history as a starting point for his extensive and scholarly research. By his own admission, he can often be found in libraries and bookstores, perusing old manuscripts and documents.
