Exploring Washington's Past, Revised Edition

A Road Guide to History

Exploring Washington's Past tells the state's story in terms of where to go and what to see. With words, photographs, and maps, the authors evoke the cultural landscape and portray Washington's people and events from the days of the fur trade and pioneer settlement to the recent past. Capsule descriptions of small communities — from Altoona to Zillah — are interwoven with those of better known cities, and eastern and western Washington receive equal attention. More than two hundred photographs portray our historical landscape through images of today intermixed with a sampling of the past. This book will be an indispensable guide for residents, tourists, and armchair travelers.

Reviews

"A travel guide that's both literate and informative doesn't come along very often. Treasure it."—Seattle Times

"An all-around triumph: thoughtfully organized, well-written, handsomely illustrated, and usefully indexed. . . . The guidance involves more than road directions and mileages. [The authors] provide a feeling for terrain, an understanding of geology, a sense of the intermingling of personality and place. . . . A generation of researchers, as well as sightseers, will have cause to thank Ruth Kirk and Carmela Alexander."—Tacoma News Tribune
