Exploring Washington's Past
Exploring WashingtonÆs Past tells the stateÆs story in terms of where to go and what to see. With words, photographs, and maps, the authors evoke the cultural landscape and portray WashingtonÆs 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.
