Walking Washington’s History
Walking Washington’s History showcases the state’s engaging urban history through guided walks in ten major cities. Bentley uses narrated walks, maps, and historic photographs to reveal each city’s aspirations. Bentley begins in Vancouver, established as a fur trade emporium above the Columbia River, and ends with Bellevue, a bedroom community turned edge city. Readers crisscross the state, with walks through urban Olympia, Walla Walla, Tacoma, Seattle, Everett, Bellingham, Yakima, and Spokane. Whether readers pass through these cities as tourists or set out to explore their home terrain, they will discover both the visible and invisible markers of Washington history underfoot.
