  •  AWARD WINNER! In September 2012, Rising Tides and Tailwinds was honored by the American Association of Port Authorities with their Award of Merit.
  • AWARD WINNER! The National Association of Government Communicators announced in October 2012 that Rising Tides and Tailwinds has been honored with a Second Place Award.
  • Steven Beda, H-Environment:Rising Tides and Tailwinds is the best sort of local history: it is attentive to large historical changes but does not lose sight of the personalities and smaller stories that make local histories informative and fun to read … overall, this is an excellent book that a diversity of readers will find valuable. The book’s narrative is clearly presented and the writing is lively. This, along with the beautiful pictures, makes the book accessible even to those unfamiliar with Seattle’s history. At the same time, [the authors] reveal many new dimensions of Seattle’s history that even readers already familiar with the Pacific Northwest’s past will appreciate.” 
  • City Living:Rising Tides features plenty of colorful actors, from fiery longshore-union leader Harry Bridges to railroad mogul James J. Hill. The Port of Seattle, one realizes, hasn’t always been about buttoned-down port commissioners and wedding-cake cruise ships dominating the waterfront. This is Seattle history from another angle.”
