Planning for a great trip

We bought this for our little vacation following the trail of the Lewis and Clark Expedition through Washington State. We have learned so much about our own state by using this book. Definitely worth the money.

Great for Washington's Back Roads

As a native of the state, I'm familiar with the popular history of Washington that has been told and re-told many times. That is why it's a joy to come across a book with little known and interesting stories about our past. To come across a sign announcing a small town, and to be able to read about that town in this book gives me a new appreciation for the area I'm driving through and the state I live in.

Exploring Washington's Past

This well organized and very readable book is a combination history book and travel guide. The authors personally traveled to the sites and provide detailed directions and numerous photographs as well as historical and social background.I am a long-time resident of Washington and have learned much from this book. I refer to it often and people who have borrowed my copy have enjoyed it enough to purchase their own copies.Topic coverage varies from a couple of paragraphs to a few pages. The book is organized by geographic regions and the highly detailed index makes it possible to find a place or event quickly.

A fascinating tour through the State's origins and byways

The authors have produced a very readable and entertaining history of Washington State including the origins of the towns and cities, the people who contributed to their development and how they developed over the years. Organized by regions and highways, it is a must for anyone interested in exploring the byways of the state and learning how it came to be.
