From the stormy Washington coast and lush dark green of the Hoh Rain Forest to the stark and arid high desert and wheat-covered hills of the Palouse, the state of Washington is home to an incredible diversity of ecosystems and organisms—including the humans who hike its mountains and swim its waters. Where else can you find both the wettest place in the United States and the quietest? Or five active volcanoes, including one that blew its top not so long ago?

Brought to you by the visionaries behind Seattle’s Great Wheel, Wings Over Washington is a companion to the cutting-edge Pier 57 attraction of the same name. Filled with stunning photographs and elegant descriptions, this book offers a comprehensive exploration of the remarkable region known as the Evergreen State and provides readers the opportunity to bring their experience home.
