About this book

For nearly fifty years, artist and naturalist Tony Angell has used Puget Sound's natural diversity as his artist's palette. In this book, he describes the living systems within the Sound and shares his observations and encounters with the species that make up the complex communities of the Sound's rivers, tidal flats, islands, and beaches: the fledging flight of a young peregrine, an otter playfully herding a small red rockfish, the grasp of a curious octopus.

The author goes on to explain the methods he uses in his art. The shapes, movements, patterns, and even temperatures and smells that he experiences in the field are all brought to bear on his work. His drawings bring clarity to his visual and emotional memories, and his sculptures allow him to approach a memory from many directions and retain that memory in his hands. In all of his work, he lets the passion and excitement of his discoveries drive his artistic expression.

Media reviews
A wonderful book, as Angell's superlative sculpture and exquisite drawings demonstrate how fine art can build a bridge of understanding to an extraordinary and still-wild area that remains an important repository of some of the natural capital we depend on. --Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University "Puget Sound is not just a description of a geography, it is a place. Tony Angell's book brings home that place in all its mystery and splendor. This is why the people who live [in the Pacific Northwest] love it." --William Ruckelshaus, former administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency "Tony Angell's sculpture is iconic." --Robert McCracken Peck, author of A Celebration of Birds
