Reviews

[An] encompassing, timeless retelling of Tacoma's history . . . Today, as it was upon its release, it's seen as both a work of history and a work of uncompromising adoration for the place its author called home. . . . Puget's Sound remains revered in Tacoma, particularly among those with an undying affinity for the city's colorful past.
