Overview

Roslyn, a mining town nestled in Washington's Cascade Mountains, is a little town with a big history. Founded three years before Washington was admitted to the Union, Roslyn became a boomtown after the discovery of coal. Coal was king in Roslyn for 80 years, and immigrants came from all over the world to work the mines. Roslyn's remarkable history includes stories of murder, a mine strike that ended with the mine boss tied to the railroad tracks, and a bank robbery some claim was masterminded by Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Readers will meet characters like Tony Bailey-he turned out to be a she-who worked the mines for 11 months in 1949 before being arrested one night in a tavern for going into the women's bathroom dressed as a man. And no book about Roslyn would be complete without a chapter on the hit television series Northern Exposure, which was filmed there.

    What a lame book

    I read part of this book and had to put it down. Not really sure what the author was trying to do with this small book of photos. I live in Washington and found this book to be boring and uneventful. The few words on the pages describing the photos were not very informative. While the historical images of the town of Roslyn are a window into the past, the book as a whole is lacking the touch of a professional writer needs them combine into a cohesive book. The elementary level structures of the sentences on the pages made it very boring to follow and I felt like I was reading a book written by a child. I don't recommend this book for anyone. The pages would be better served lighting your evening campfire.
