Oregon Field Guide

Special Delivery


Where the Snake River runs through Hells Canyon in northeastern Oregon, a weekly mail boat delivers more than just letters. Some ranchers along the river don’t have phones or boats of their own, and the mail boat is their only contact with the outside world. The boat delivers groceries and supplies, and even ferries pets to the vet. In summer tourists come along for the ride, but in winter it’s a dangerous ride.

First Broadcast: 1990
Producer: Steve Lobel
