Tideflats to Tomorrow: The History of Seattle s SoDo by Dan Raley, a local Seattle author and longtime Seattle P.I. reporter, is a four-color tribute to Seattle s workplace, the city s rough-and-tumble industrial area south of downtown. The book outlines the evolution of how millions of yards of fill sloughed from the city s eastern hills covered Elliott Bay salty tideflats to form what is now called SoDo. It also covers such landmark eras as Hooverville spawned by the Great Depression; the role of the Alaskan Gold Rush in Seattle s emergence on the national map; the containerization of the city s waterfront; some of the most popular watering holes and eateries; the construction and implosion of the Kingdome, Qwest Field and Safeco Field; and the area s emerging future as one of the city s last great areas for growth and possible changes to its traditional use. Many personalities were interviewed and appear in the book. The lineup includes owners and founders of past and current SoDo businesses; Seattle city council members; Seattle Mariners and Seahawks management; past and present sports stars; the folks who coined the word SoDo, a term now etched into the city s consciousness; and dozens of everyday workers and laborers, the people who are the area s backbone. In addition to Raley s provocative prose depicting SoDo, the book features a Foreword by Seattle s preeminent historian Paul Dorpat, incredible historical photos of SoDo and Seattle, a full index, and much more.
