Les Eldridge & John W. Hough: Maritime Olympia

We are so thrilled to host local authors Les Eldridge and John W. Hough in support of their new book (pub date 5/22/17), Maritime Olympia and South Puget Sound, by Arcadia Publishing. After the authors speak, books will be available for signing and purchase.

This engaging pictorial history traces the evolution of South Puget Sound from the provider of rich resources for the First Nations to Olympia’s role as an important international seaport. The estuary was named Puget’s Sound after Lt. Peter Puget, of British captain George Vancouver’s 1792 exploration of the region. The capital city of Olympia was a frequent stop for Mosquito Fleet steamers a century ago and has evolved into a major port for the worldwide export of timber. Today, people enjoy Olympia as a vibrant, modern seaport with many recreational opportunities.
