Description

From an unexpected mudslide that blanketed an entire town to the massive manhunt for an infamous prison escapee, It Happened in Washington looks at intriguing people and episodes from the history of the Evergreen State. Sail the seas along Washington's rugged coast, explore the untamed wilderness of the U.S.-Canada border, and climb to the summit of Mount Rainier.

Meet Frederick Weyerhaeuser, the wealthiest timber man in the nation.

Experience the horror of the firestorm known as the Great Yacolt Fire. And learn about Kennewick Man, the 8,500-year-old skeleton found near a river - you'll dig the details. This collection includes thirty-three extraordinary episodes--some well-known and others surprising--about Washington's history.
