description -

Informal and picturesque as it is, Skid Road is also a sound history of Seattle, which takes up in turn the forces and incidents that determined the growth of the city: pioneering, Indian warfare, lumber, railroads, the great fire of 1889, the Alaska gold rush, the amusement business, newspapers, the general strike of 1919, and the tumultuous politics of city and state that have made history in the Northwest.
