This third edition is the most complete and comprehensive history of Kitsap county. First compiled in 1977, this reprinted edition has quality photographs and in-depth information that will delight “history buffs” as well as historians.  Beginning with an overview of Kitsap County, the book is divided into four major geographical areas:  North, Central, and South Kitsap County, Bremerton & Naval Shipyard, and Bainbridge Island.

Based on oral histories, personal accounts, archival records, photographic collections, official documents, newspaper and journal articles, this book is a wealth of information. Maps and timelines are also included.   Appendices at the back provide additional useful information on Mosquito Fleet Routes, Kitsap Location Names, Kitsap Lakes, Logging Terms, and a list of Naval, Seamanship and Fishing terms.

Copies of this beautifully bound book are available for $75 at the Kitsap History Museum beginning Friday, November 30, 2012.
