For some, Seattle is the corner of the Northwest. For others, it is the headquarters for some of the world's most recognized brands-Microsoft, Amazon.com, REI, Boeing, etc. For still others it is a destination, a vacation spot to see the likes of the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, or perhaps the stunning view of the Sound and the Olympic Mountains.

Overview


For some, Seattle is the corner of the Northwest. For others, it is the headquarters for some of the world's most recognized brands-Microsoft, Amazon.com, REI, Boeing, etc. For still others it is a destination, a vacation spot to see the likes of the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, or perhaps the stunning view of the Sound and the Olympic Mountains. The Emerald City seems to reside in our country's psyche as our hope, our hype, our home-young, rambunctious, eager to imitate, out-innovate, and challenge the world's reigning metropolitan centers. This photo-essay journey by acclaimed photographer Joel Rogers sets out to document the heart of the Northwestern culture and the soul of an urban mecca. Along the way, readers discover why it's so easy to fall in love with Seattle.

I live in Seattle, and find this book not just pretty on the coffee- table, but also extremely informative. Relevant information is presented in a very readable style, and the beautiful photographs makes it an absolute pleasure. For visitors to Seattle, I recommend this as a great and lasting souvenir.
