Part documentary and part poetry, this is an attempt to evoke something of this place we call Seattle: the people, the land and the water. I follow the thesis of the writer Coll Thrush in his Native Seattle, who speaks of the city as a “crossing-over place:”
The entire city is a palimpsest, a text erased only partially and then written over again. It is a landscape of places changed by power, of Indian places transformed into urban ones and sometimes back again.
