Willamette River: Swan Island to Kelley Point Professional Review and Guide
"Swan Island has always played an important role in the development of Portland. In the 1850s, when several embryonic towns were competing for the role of the regional center of shipping and commerce, difficulties in crossing the Swan Island sand bar during periods of low water were downplayed by Portlanders, while downstream rivals exaggerated the hazards of crossing the bar."
