Mercer Island History: From Haunted Wilderness to Coveted Community is the all-new, photo-filled hardback history of Mercer Island by Jane Meyer Brahm, based on the 1989 history by Judy Gellatly. As the only history authorized by the Mercer Island Historical Society, it is an essential read for anybody who's ever lived on Mercer Island, aspired to live there, or wondered about it while crossing it on I-90. 

A "readable and witty rendition of the Island's past in a 21st-century format," says Mary Grady of the Mercer Island Reporter.
