Condition - Good.
The author views with vast amusement the foibles, the in-fighting, the questionable maneuvers and the high-handed tactics that were indigenous to the times as individuals, cities and railroads scrambled for wealth and power on Puget Sound. The book is deeply researched, and the many interesting anecdotes that pepper it are true. It's a lively, lusty-and often irreverent look at Seattle's first fifty years.and who made a buck along the way.
