2011 Outstanding Title, University Press Books for Public and Secondary School LibrariesWinner of the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Award Before Forks, a small town on Washington�s Olympic Peninsula, became famous as the location for Stephenie Meyer�s Twilight book series, it was the self-proclaimed �Logging Capital of the World� and ground zero in a regional conflict over the fate of old-growth forests. Since Pulitzer Prize�winning journalist William Dietrich first published The Final Forest in 1992, logging in Forks has given way to tourism, but even with its new fame, Forks is still a home to loggers and others who make their living from the surrounding forests. The new edition recounts how forest policy and practices have changed since the early 1990s and also tells us what has happened in Forks and where the actors who were so important to the timber wars are now.

No author has attempted to write the history of all the newspapers on the North Olympic Peninsula—until now. Strait Press: A History of the News Media on the North Olympic Peninsula does that. There have been books that detailed the newspaper history in Clallam County, and two books covered the media history in Jefferson County. Now Strait Press encompasses both counties. This book is about not only newspapers but also radio stations and even television. The reader will learn which president came to Port Angeles in 1937 and was instrumental in establishing Olympic National Park. Creating that park was perhaps the most divisive issue in the history of the Port Angeles newspapers. You will discover why. Learn which newspaper owner in Sequim arrived and vowed to run the Sequim Press out of town and did it. Find out what well-known author spent a night in a Port Townsend jail on his way back from gold panning in the Klondike. In Forks, the reader will learn which newspaper owner became part of a quad marriage in which four sisters were wed in the same ceremony. The history of each area is discussed. Learn about mastodons, the Great Blowdown, devastating fires, oil spills, and how each paper handled 9/11. And whenever possible, the author infuses the discussion with humorous anecdotes. So pull up a chair and start your education of North Olympic news media.
