The bookMoreTideflats to Tomorrow: The History of Seattles SoDo by Dan Raley, a local Seattle author and longtime Seattle P.I. reporter, is a four-color tribute to Seattles workplace, the citys rough-and-tumble industrial area south of downtown. The book outlines the evolution of how millions of yards of fill sloughed from the citys eastern hills covered Elliott Bay salty tideflats to form what is now called SoDo. It also covers such landmark eras as Hooverville spawned by the Great Depression- the role of the Alaskan Gold Rush in Seattles emergence on the national map- the containerization of the citys waterfront- some of the most popular watering holes and eateries- the construction and implosion of the Kingdome, Qwest Field and Safeco Field- and the areas emerging future as one of the citys last great areas for growth and possible changes to its traditional use.
