Pig War Islands.
by [Northwest History] Richardson, David.

Publisher Information:
Orcas Publishing Co, Eastsound: 1971.

A Fine tight copy in a Very Good plus, unclipped dust jacket with some slight rubbing to the edges. This copy is signed by the author. Richardson has written the story of the 1859 clash between British and American forces over the ownership of the San Juan Islands, instigated by the shooting death of an errant British pig by an American settler. The San Juan Islands lie 80 miles north of Seattle and the author recounts the entertaining story of their early history and the military encounter that changed their history forever. Richardson also provides detailed accounts of the major players in this international incident, and the aftermath of the "war" and its effects on the islands.
