Higher Purpose Podcast EP #19: Peter Stark
In this episode, we interview Peter Stark, an award winning author, travel writer, and long-time correspondent for Outside magazine. His most recent best selling book, Astoria, details the thrilling, true tale of the 1810 Astor Expedition, an epic, now forgotten, three-year journey to forge an American empire on the Pacific Coast. Stark offers a detailed account about the band of explorers that battled nature, starvation, and madness to establish the first American settlement in the Pacific Northwest, clearing a path for the future of The Oregon Trail.
We are excited to have shared Astoria with attendees prior to our upcoming Summit, August 27-30th outside Portland, OR. To learn more about Peter Stark and his work, please visit:
