Morgan doesn't just tell the history of Seattle with one event following another. Each chapter is a story in itself and each focuses on one or two individuals. It was the first history book I ever read like that: history as experienced by specific people at the time. A wonderful read.

This tasty little book, by the master storyteller of the Northwest is a great collection of vignettes of Seattle History. From Doc Maynard and the Mercer Girls, to Dave Beck and Big Labor, Morgan focused on important folks in Seattle history and the important issues surrounding them. ( )
