A Journey through the Maxwelton Watershed

by Ann Linnea

In the Pacific Northwest a watershed that is still home to returning salmon is a treasure to be respected. A Journey Through the Maxwelton Watershed – A Natural and Social History by Ann Linnea focuses on such a watershed – the Maxwelton Valley on the southern end of Whidbey Island (20 miles north of Seattle, WA). Its history and environmental issues stand as a template for understanding similar watersheds and their issues throughout the Cascadia bio-region.

This book details the histories of fourth and fifth-generation farmers, explains complex land use laws, and explores the biological/geological backdrop of the valley.

Fully illustrated with black and white photos, the book stands as a fine example of the phrase, “Think globally, act locally.”
