Abstract:

"Seattle is famous for its breathtaking natural environment - from the islands and waterways of Puget Sound to the old-growth forests of the Olympic Range to magnificent Mount Rainier. Now, in celebration of this scenic city, Wild Seattle explores the natural treasures to be found within a 90-minute drive from downtown. More than 140 extraordinary full-color images of wildlands, parks, and preserves by renowned nature photographers Terry Donnelly and Mary Liz Austin are perfectly complemented by a text by acclaimed author and Seattle native Timothy Egan.".

"The natural landscapes of the greater Seattle area are remarkable in scope. Separate chapters in the book showcase "wild in the city" retreats such as Schmitz and Discovery Parks; the scenic islands of Puget Sound, including Vashon, Whidbey, and the San Juans; the Olympic Peninsula, including the eastern side of Olympic National Park and the Kitsap Peninsula; Mount Rainier and its environs, from Mount Rainier National Park to the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge; and the magnificent North Cascades, including Cascade Pass, the Skagit Valley, and the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. In each chapter, the photo gallery gathers both glorious panoramas and intimate close-ups, revealing the incredible diversity of flora and fauna to be found in that area.".

"The book concludes with an afterword by longtime conservationist Doug Scott highlighting the efforts - both past and present - to protect the Seattle area's natural habitats in the face of rampant urban growth."--BOOK JACKET.
