Thank you very, very much.
This issue was confounding the hell out of me.
I'm a newbie to DAW usage, and I'm just getting used to the terrain.
I've read up on studio techniques and such, but putting theory to 
practice always has a learning curve, and I'm at the very beginning if 
that curve.

Would it be too much trouble to ask how I can avoid the problem of 
trimming the original track as a side effect? Whenever I attempt to 
select a region from it, everything but the region of interest 
disappears from view, and I can't get the remainder of the track back in 
the editor. It will still audition in its' totality, but I can't see the 
unselected content anymore.
