This fascinating, unique book spans nearly a century of pacific northwest maritime history. Stunning never before published photos cover Puget Sound and the Pacific Coast from Oregon to Alaska, made from 1910 to the present by Jeremy Snapp and his grandfather John Snapp. Here are views of working ships-the last of commercial sail, the passenger steamers of the Mosquito Fleet, and the inland freighters, tugs, barges, and lightships that were all a part of the Northwest Legacy.

In this book, the focus is literally on boats as documented in a series of black and white photos with accompanying descriptions. The author is very well versed in marine history and technology - particularly diesel engine technology. Not all of the photographs are great quality but the book is an important record of the variety of ships that plied Puget Sound back in the day. I hope this book gets digitized, it would be ideal as a searchable online resource. As a book, it is a relaxing read with a lot of detail to delve into.

The steam ferry SAN MATEO, seen here moored on the Fraser River in 1999, was one of only three San Francisco ferries, of many to come to Puget Sound, to keep her name.
