This Third Edition of Kitsap County 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.
