About the Event
Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound is an award-winning nonfiction account of the long story of the Sound, tracing human history from the earliest records more than 12,500 years ago to present. Williams also focuses on often overlooked species such as Olympia oysters, rockfish, geoduck, kelp, and herring, as well as salmon and orca. Witty, graceful, and deeply informed, Homewaters presents a fascinating and hopeful narrative, one that will introduce newcomers to the astonishing life that inhabits Puget Sound and offers longtime residents new insights into and appreciation of the waters they call home.

He is also the author of the award-winning book Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle’s Topography, as well as Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City.
