ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
These 3 CDs come with a companion guidebook that has tour maps, photographs, and information about cultural treasures located along a complete loop tour of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. The guided audio portion corresponds with driving time during the trip, pointing out the diverse cultural heritage along the way, and includes Native American, Finnish American, Croatian American, Norwegian American, Mexican American, Vietnamese American, Japanese American, German American, Anglo-American, logger poets, woodsmen & guides, fisher poets, Native American storytellers, musicians & basketweavers, boat builders, fishermen, and many more.

The Olympic Peninsula is a vast panorama of forests, mountains, and seashores. It includes a major national park, a national forest, and five federal wilderness areas. This audio tour and guidebook will help acquaint you with the Olympic Peninsula Loop Highway. The highway is a Washington Heritage Corridor, so designated by the Washington State Legislature, in cooperation with the Department of Transportation’s Heritage Corridors Program. Most of it is also part of the federally designated Pacific Coast Scenic Byway.

"These heritage 'recordings to go' aren't the information highway the futurists talk about, but they are a great source of information, folklore, and music that color the landscape as it goes by."

Sid Morrison, Washington State Secretary of Transportation and former U.S. Representative from central Washington

"This tour guide is a tour de force. The combination of sounds is an aural feast. A wise man once said, 'Our eyes are at the mercy of our ignorance.' It allows us to hear what we can't see."

Dave Nicandri, Director, Washington State Historical Society
