"Place names are like the historical markers past which we all speed in our motor cars, too preoccupied to stop and enjoy them," says author Doug Brokenshire. Strait of Juan de Fuca, Puyallup, Anacortes, Walla Walla-these are some of the place names of Washington State. Scratch the surface and you will uncover a wealth of lore, legend, and local flavor. Light-hearted, yet factual. Local residents and travelers, alike, enjoy browsing this do-it-yourself history book.
