9780295974439: Exploring Washington's Past: 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.

From Library Journal:

This encyclopedic guide to the state of Washington does exactly what it promises: it explores the visible history of that lovely state. It is geared to the curious tourist, and offers many photographs and maps, clearly written road directions, and a good index. Entries are by eight geographic regions, alphabetical within each region and cross-referenced to other entries. Although most describe locations, boxed entries may describe "apples," "barns," or other facets of the landscape. Descriptions often quote from historical documents, adding immediacy to the historical context. The wealth of carefully coordinated detail in this exhaustive work shows a great love of its subject. Recommended primarily for regional travel collections.

Review:

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)
