With its headwaters in a national park and its mouth in a national wildlife refuge, the Nisqually River flows from glacier to delta, carving a circuitous path through forests, farm fields, and prairies.

The majestic Nisqually River and its surrounding lands have been carefully managed to ensure environmental health, nurture time-honored traditions, preserve local history and encourage the region's resource-based economy. Today logging, fishing and farming continue to shape the identity of the 722-square-mile Nisqually River Watershed as they have for well over a hundred years.

Nisqually Watershed is the legacy of the Nisqually River, a story of land and water stewardship, artfully presented in stunning original color photographs and a rich, insightful and informative text. It portrays the region's habitats and inhabitants, emphasizes the collaborative efforts of individuals and organizations within the watershed and promotes conservation of watersheds throughout the world. Native history, homesteader's tales, contemporary accounts of watershed dynamics, and naturalists' notes are all combined in this compelling portrait of a special place for Washington natives
