The Everett & Monte Cristo Railway helped build Snohomish County and just as the County is celebrating its 150th anniversary, the authors of the “Everett & Monte Cristo Railway” are holding a book signing at the Granite Falls Historical Museum on Saturday, Jan. 8, 2011.
The hardcover version of this book sold out immediately some years ago, with copies offered on eBay at up to $300. You can now have a soft-cover version, signed by the authors, for only $39.95.
Printed in large format, the pictures, maps and stories bring to life the early days of our region, along with the incredibly hard work, tough conditions, and occasional skullduggery that was a part of everyday life.
Don’t miss this opportunity for over 230 pages of riveting accounts and over 200 pictures of a railroad that hauled millions of tons of ore and billions of board feet of lumber, only to ultimately fall prey to natural disasters, economic turmoil, and the automobile. Be there from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Granite Falls Historical Museum.
