In the Pacific Northwest, many of us delight in Olympic National Park, a unique and magical UNESCO natural World Heritage Site, located right in our own backyard. Yet the famed park is just the center of a much larger ecosystem, a wild circle of rivers that encompasses ancient old-growth forests, pristine coastal expanses, and jagged alpine peaks, all possessed of a rich biodiversity. For tens of thousands of years, humans have thrived and strived alongside this natural world.
In Salmon, Cedar, Rock & Rain
, Tim McNulty explores the Olympic Peninsula's complex--and ongoing--story of development, conservation, restoration, and cultural heritage, while writers from the Lower Elwha Klallam, Jamestown S'Klallam, Port Gamble S'Klallam, Makah Tribe, and Quinault Indian Nation share some of their own history, stories, and perspectives.
Perhaps no other region in the Northwest offers a history of such depth, nor a future ripe with so much potential. Salmon, Cedar, Rock & Rain
is a rich and vivid exploration of both Olympic National Park and its surrounding peninsula.
