This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Before this classic historical atlas was republished in 1994, used copies of Stephen Hilson's Evergreen Pacific Exploring Puget Sound & British Columbia sold for up to $150. This reissue of Hilson's nautical atlas contains reproductions of government charts that are filled with historical anecdotes. The charts cover Olympia, Washington, north on the east inside passage of Vancouver Island to Queen Charlotte Strait. Aerial photos enhance the historical charm of this book and its index of over 3,000 locations is extremely helpful. Read about the shoot-out on Skagit Island with one of the members of Butch Cassidy's Hole-in-the-Wall gang or about how some excellent fish weighing up to 200 lbs. each inspired Capt. Vancouver to name the coastline adjacent to the Fraser River. This is another Hilson atlas that will truly inspire dreams about voyages taken in the past and dreams of voyages to be made in the future. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Reissue of Stephen E. Hilson's orginal 1979 historical & nautical atlas, covering Olympia, Washington, north on the east side of Vancouver Island to Queen Charlotte Strait. Large scale charts filled with historical anecdotes; colored aerial phots and an index of over 3,000 locations.
Über den Autor: While Stephen Hilson grew up in Michigan, an extended stay with his brother in Alaska resulted in a love affair with the Pacific Northwest. He soon discovered that he could combine this love with his skills as a photographer and writer to make a living. He was fascinated by folklore of each new region he explored by land or by sea, and he spent hours researching the history of each area. At the age of 39, Stephen Hilson died in Seattle after a fairly short abattle with cancer, but his legacy of historical atlases lives on.
