Peter Puget by Robert C. Wing with Gordon Newell

"For anyone interested in the Northwest, the publication of Peter Puget is a milestone.  Puget led the surveying party that first charted Puget Sound.  The name Puget is used in many businesses, in landmarks and in public events, yet the man has remained so much a mystery that many residents of the Sound region have been unaware of his existence.  The is the first book about Peter Puget, the explorer who was a contemporary of Captain Bligh, Lord Nelson and Napoleon during a great time of exploration and war.  Puget's life was filled with the excitement of unknown lands, Indian confrontations and great naval battles, yet it seemed that only his name would survive, as happens with many good men."
