about

With the same ability to make personalities and events come alive that characterizes his classic Skid Road, Murray Morgan here tells the colorful story of southern Puget Sound, where major events of Washington?s history took place, and of Tacoma, the area?s principal city. Drawing upon the original journals and reports, Morgan tells his story largely in terms of individuals, interweaving portraits of well-known historical figures with those who are more obscure but who have a special significance.

Journalist and historian Murray Morgan (1916?2000) was the author of more than twenty books, including Skid Road: An Informal Portrait of Seattle and The Last Wilderness. He worked for Time magazine, the New York Herald Tribune, and CBS News before returning to Washington where he taught at Tacoma Community College and for fifteen years hosted the early morning radio show "Our Town, Our World."

Editorial Reviews

The best books have the capacity to tower above their subjects, remaining relevant long after their authors have left us. Morgan, through his poetic and evocative imagery, created an enduring legacy that will enable generations of future readers to experience the grandeur and the wonder of the Pacific Northwest, its history, and its people.
