Staff Reviews


Written by the founder of the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition, The River That Made Seattle is an insightful, carefully researched history of the river, its watershed, and of the people—both Native and immigrant—who live beside it. If you are interested in the history of Seattle, this book pairs well with another University of Washington Press title, David B. Williams’s Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle's Topography.
