Challenging the myth of the vanishing race, Thrush (history, U. of British Columbia) describes how Native Americans were important to the founding of Seattle from the 1800s to the twenty-first century. He argues against the idea that urban and Native histories are separate and recounts the founding of Seattle as a complex historical process that the native inhabitants helped to shape. He then looks at the role of the Duwamish in the creation of the urban frontier of Puget Sound and two important periods of change: the 1880s and the 1930s. Topical chapters examine the experiences of local indigenous people through various urban transformations, the influence of Native migrants to the city, and non-Indians use of Native imagery to tell Seattle's story. Final chapters cover the post-war period and the multiethnic, pan-Indian urban community and the resurgence of local tribes. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
