From canoes to the mosquito fleet to our modern-day ferry system, boats have been a principal means of travel around Puget Sound. In a landscape dominated by forest and sea, water was often the best way to get from point A to point B. In this talk, which is based on research from his next book about human and natural history in Puget Sound, Williams will highlight how people have spent the last 13,000 years boating this extraordinary waterway. David B. Williams is a freelance writer focused on the intersection of people and the natural world. His most recent book was Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City. He lives in Seattle and continues to explore and travel through the city by foot and by bike. Sponsored by a 4Culture grant.
