Explores the natural treasures to be found within a 90-minute drive from downtown Seattle. Separate chapters in the book showcase "wild in the city" retreats such as Schmitz and Discovery Parks; the scenic islands of Puget Sound; the Olympic Peninsula, including the eastern side of Olympic National Park and the Kitsap Peninsula; Mount Rainier and its environs, from Mount Rainier National Park to the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge; and the magnificent North Cascades, including Cascade Pass, the Skagit, and the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. In each chapter, the photo gallery gathers both glorious panoramas and intimate close-ups, revealing the incredible diversity of flora and fauna to be found in each area. An afterword by longtime conservationist Doug Scott highlights the efforts - both past and present - to protect the Seattle area's natural habitats in the face of rampant urban growth.
