Digital Cocktails & Fishtales – Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound
Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound
Homewaters:A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound is a nonfiction account of the long story of the Sound, tracing human history from the earliest records more than 12,500 years ago to present. Along the way, I discuss Native people, the arrival of explorers and settlers, and how the various inhabitants adapted to place. I then weave in stories of the natural world, covering often overlooked species such as Olympia oysters, rockfish, geoduck, kelp, and herring, as well as salmon and orca. Witty, graceful, and deeply informed, Homewaters weaves history and science into a fascinating and hopeful narrative, one that will introduce newcomers to the astonishing life that inhabits Puget Sound and offers longtime residents new insights into and appreciation of the waters they call home.
