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.
Memories to remember A Customer Jeremey Snapps new book "Northwest Legacy" is a historical documentary for the avid maritimer. Its indepth photos suspend our imaginations in a time that should be held for future generations to reflect upon the time when steam and sail was very real to life. I have found myself intrigued over and over with individual shots of daily working life on the water and dockside, bringing fantacies of what life and work in these situations were really like in the Northwest. Three cheers! I look forward to the next books in the series.
