gstorbeck: I SO agree! When folks new to town ask me what to read first to get a sense of the place's history, the first two books on my lips are two oldies but goodies - Murray Morgan's Skid Road, and Bill Speidel's Sons of the Profits. After those there are many great works covering specific eras or angles ("Native Seattle," "Seattle in the 20th Century") as well as a wealth of photographic things, but if someone were to read just one book, this is it.

The way Morgan writes is a real treat to read. Informative, with sharp wit and lots of style. Obviously a mighty intellect, lots to learn here.
