Walking Washington's History
She begins in Vancouver, established as a fur trade emporium on a plain above the Columbia River, and ends with Bellevue, a bedroom community turned edge city. In between, readers crisscross the state, with walks through urban Olympia, Walla Walla, Tacoma, Seattle, Everett, Bellingham, Yakima, and Spokane.
Whether readers pass through these cities as tourists or set out to explore their home terrain, they will discover both the visible and invisible markers of Washington history underfoot.
About the Author
"By guiding our footsteps, Judy Bentley leads us off the couch and away from the TV set to where the events that shaped our state actually took place. Her first book led us on ten hikes; this one takes us to ten cities representing Washington's ongoing story. Each walk highlights historic sites and events, provides maps and parking suggestions, and locates amenities such as museums and libraries."—Ruth Kirk, author of Ozette
