About the Book
This large format coffee table book is an essay in photos exploring the competition and connection between man and nature, set in an extraordinary urban marsh.
The marsh is one of the best urban wetlands left in the world, and it is less than four miles from the Space Needle in Seattle. It survives despite being dumped on, filled, burned, cleared and used as a toilet for many years. It is a place where some species can still stop twice each year while migrating to the Arctic or South America to rest and fuel up on tiny animals and green plants. It is a place where another species thrives by speeding through twice each day, fueled by petroleum, caffeine and the desire to harvest some green of their own.
There are many residents too. Those at the top of the food chain are deciding the fate of this fragile treasure and all of its inhabitants, including themselves.
