Carnation Verbatim: A Snoqualmie Valley Memoir
This fine art coffee table book is a collection of 27 oral histories gathered from elder citizens of Carnation, WA who are the children and grandchildren of some of the first settlers in the Snoqualmie valley iin the first two decades of the 20th Century. There are full page B & W portraits of each elder as complliments to each story as well as landscapes and farmstead B & W photographs plus archival family photos. All the portraits and landscapes are by Jerry Mader who also interviewed and edited the oral histories. The project was funded in part by the 4Culture Heritage programs of King County, WA. The stories present an intimate view of the minute particulars of rural life in a small agriculture based community during the first half of the 20th Century. This publication was a 2009 Nominee for the Association of King County Heritage Organizations (AKCHO) Award for outstanding Heritage Publications.
