The early history of Lake Washington is fascinating enough all on its own. But combine conventional history with the oral tradition of imparting knowledge between generations, you’ve got a playful academic romp on your hands. In addition to an examination of early land owners around the lake and a tour of our first settlements, this text explores the islands that exist within the lake. Delivered with scholarly detail, the story is lovingly told by a doting grandfather to his precocious pre-teen granddaughter. This entertaining read is guided by the curiosity of a child and enlivened by the witty banter that bridges the generation gap.
