Only opened in 1972, the highway crosses the most formidable part of the North Cascades Mountain range in northern Washington. Highway building, gold mining, dams of Seattle City Light, beginnings of the Forest Service, all were challenged by the terrain. Told with many human interest stories of pre-highway adventures, as well as 20th century events. Originally published by The Mountaineers Books, reprinted by demand.
