This is a thread dedicated to the history, well known people and events associated with the great state of Washington.

You may add books that take place in this state, are about this state, have a scene that takes place in this state or have events where this state is mentioned.

There is no self promotion on the History Book Club.

Washington's History: The People, Land, and Events of the Far Northwest (Westwinds Press Pocket Guides)

Washington's History, Revised Edition The People, Land, and Events of the Far Northwest (Westwinds Press Pocket Guide) by Harry Ritter by Harry Ritter (no photo)

Synopsis:

Now with a new design and updated content, including three brand-new chapters plus a new preface and a postscript from the author.

An anything-but-dry history textbook in a take-it-with-you package, Washington’s History is a fascinating walk through the sweeping story of a place and its people.

For centuries, the natural beauty and riches of the Northwest have excited the human imagination, from its first peoples to seafaring explorers, to westward-thinking pioneers, to technological thinkers and giants.
A Washington resident himself, author Harry Ritter offers fifty-five vignettes illustrated with rare archival photographs that comprise an entertaining and informative picture of life in the Far Northwest.

Learn about the Natives, explorers, traders, missionaries, loggers, farmers, inventors, and politicians. From Chief Seattle to Dr. John McLoughlin, William E. Boeing, Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson, Bill Gates, and Jeff Bezos, these are the people at the epicenter of events that shaped the Evergreen State.
