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 reveals the incredible natural treasures to be found within a 90-minute drive from downtown. More than 140 stunning full-color images of wildlands, parks, and preserves by renowned nature photographers Terry Donnelly and Mary Liz Austin are perfectly complemented by an evocative text by acclaimed author and Seattle native Timothy Egan.
Separate chapters 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; and the magnificent North Cascades, including Cascade Pass, the Skagit, and the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Each chapter’s photo gallery gathers both glorious panoramas and intimate close-ups, highlighting the incredible diversity of flora and fauna to be found in each area.
Wild Seattle is sure to entice residents and visitors alike to explore familiar landscapes and discover surprising wild places in the “Emerald City.”
