David B. Williams’ (@geologywriter) new book, “Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound,” takes us on a tour through nature and history to understand how humans have interacted with, and transformed, the waters of the Washington state coastline. The book weaves together geology, archeology, biology and the histories of all the peoples who have called the region home.
