About this book

At the foot of the snow-capped Cascade Mountains on the forested shores of Puget Sound, Seattle is set in a location of spectacular natural beauty. This book explores the role of nature in the development of the city of Seattle from the earliest days of its settlement.

'A fascinating revisionist look at the settling and shaping of this city. Seattle may be acclaimed as a model of enviro-awareness but Klingle points out many dispiriting chinks in its greenie armor.' John Marshall, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
