Product Details


McConaghy is a treasure of Northwest historians, and her book is a treasure trove, a must-read for anyone who wants an eclectic, entertaining survey of Washington state history. Not everyone does, but this book proves those who don’t care are missing a lot.

New Land, North of the Columbia
is [a] welcome book for those well-versed in Washington history, or for those new to the state. The images are wonderful, the text is a pleasure to read, and the combination of the two makes this a must-have for anyone interested in the growth and development of the Pacific Northwest.

New Land, North of the Columbia is a tantalizing anthology that invites us to become acquainted with the wealth of information stored in archives locally and throughout the state. This book makes a powerful argument for the undiminished importance of preserving documents and ephemera in order to understand how our manifold actions have an impact on the landscape, our government, and our society.
Kitsap Sun

A unique and entertaining way to explore our state’s history, Lorraine McConaghy—historian at the Museum of History and Industry in Seattle—assembles a wide-ranging selection of documents from public archives to tell the century-and-a-half story of Washington State.
