"Mercer Island History: From Haunted Wilderness to Coveted Community" is the all-new, comprehensive history of Mercer Island, Washington, a unique island community in Lake Washington between Seattle and Bellevue. It is published by the Mercer Island Historical Society and based on the previous history books by Judy Gellatly. With text and photos, it chronicles Mercer Island's rich history from the early settlers in the 1880s to today. It has hundreds of black and white and color photos, many of which have never been published before. It includes numerous maps and sidebars, a comprehensive timeline, descriptions of the Island's various neighborhoods, and a chapter of "then" and "now" photos. The appendix is filled with census data, lists of famous and infamous residents and much more. This hardback book is an essential read for anybody who's ever lived on Mercer Island, wondered about it while crossing it on Interstate 90 or aspired to live there.
