Told in the voices of the people who call the area home, this anecdote-filled book tells of the first peoples, the early European explorers, the bustling gold rush trade, and the newcomers who settled to farm the fertile valley bottoms, log the fir and cedar forests, harvest the ocean's bounty, mine the region's deep veins of copper, and transform the area into the year-round outdoor recreation mecca it is today." Review copy stamp at bottom of half-title page. Very minor edgewear to boards. Dust jacket has very minor edgewear/rubbing, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. VG+/VG+
