A capsule description of
Ferries of Puget Sound
      (by Steven J. Pickens — 2005)

In 128 pages with some 200 images, Steve Pickens portrays the evolving fleet of the Washington State Ferries system during the WSF's first 50-plus years of operations.  He traces the origins of the system's first vessels and follows many retired boats to their final destinations.

The book presents a comprehensive record of the ferries, as well as highly informative details in photo captions and in well-written, concise passages that introduce the book's three main sections.
