  • A collection of interesting, short stories from the history of Washington state in chronological order from the avalanche at Ozette (1480ish) to the eruption of Mt. St. Helens in 1980.


  • This quick read contains short stories of 32 events from the history of Washington state that are sure to appeal to anyone interested in U.S. history, particularly that of the Pacific Northwest. I was able to recognize many of the sites the author discusses as he explains events that happened throughout the course of the state – from as early as 1480 to 1999.I’ve been meaning to read this nonfiction book for quite some time and I’m glad I finally did. It was absolutely fascinating and I le [...]


  • The chapters were 1 to 2 pages in length. Started and finished the book in one day. Interesting stories if you want to know about the state of Washington and it's beginnings. Of interest too me was the 3 page story about the "Pig War" of the San Juan Island. Frankly, the chapters were way to short, the author could have included half the stories and doubled the length of the remaining stories and it would have been more compelling.


  • It is an easy read, just as advertised, and has some interesting tid bits. Very little of it would interest younger readers or teenagers, but it has all kinds of things for the well-travelled and curious Washintonians.



  • This history was interesting. I would have liked more in depth information on each event. Reminded me of Wash. State history class.



  • I picked this up with the hope that I would get a decent, if quickie, background about the state I live in. It was a pretty dry read - good on facts, but didn't make me itch to pick it up.



  • This has a number of short history recaps of events that took place in the state of Washington. Interesting but pretty light reading. If you live there or are a visitor, it is worth a read.
