This is a very good history by a very good writer, the author of "Simple Justice," the story of the Brown v. Board of Education supreme court decision, and how that came to be. "The Bitter Waters of Medicine Creek" is about the conflict between Governor Isaac Stevens and the Native population, a history of which no non-Native should be proud. Important for anyone who lives in the Puget Sound area to know this. I have strongly recommended it to my wife and son.
