About the Authors

Murray Morgan (1916–2000), a journalist and historian, was the author of more than twenty books, including Skid Road: An Informal Portrait of Seattle and The Last Wilderness, a history of the Olympic Peninsula. He worked for Time magazine, the New York Herald Tribune, and CBS News and hosted the early morning radio show "Our Town, Our World." Michael Sean Sullivan is a public historian, writer, and historic preservationist. He has taught Pacific Northwest history at the University of Washington Tacoma for more than twenty years and, as a graduate student, studied with Murray Morgan.

Endorsements

"Murray Morgan wrote about Puget Sound like a man so thrilled to be here he couldn't resist trying to pinpoint the magic of this place. Well, he came as close as anybody ever has. With Puget's Sound, he didn't just chronicle facts. He cobbled together a history bubbling with personalities and moments that take us from George Vancouver eyeballing this wilderness to the evolution of modern Tacoma and southern Puget Sound. Morgan was more than our best historian, he was a genuine living embodiment of the best of what we have to offer—a funny, wise, and optimistic man willing to stick his entire arm into a muddy hole in hopes of a geoduck."—Jim Lynch, author of Truth Like the Sun
