Costco to Host Book Signing for Local Fox Island Author

Don Edgers will be available to sign copies of pictorial history

PRLog - April 22, 2014 - GIG HARBOR, Wash. -- As an inlet in the South Puget Sound, Fox Island has been a location of change and history for hundreds of years.  First used by Native Americans for burials and potlatches, Fox Island has come a long way to be the community it is today.

Fox Island native Don Edgers takes readers on a journey back through time by way of vintage photographs and intriguing captions.

Edgers hope the book “shows a seemingly nondescript clump of land ─viewed from the Tacoma Narrows Bridges by thousands of people everyday─ having an interesting and vibrant history, and that it played an important part in the growth of South Puget Sound.”

A portion of the proceeds are for the support of the Fox Island Historical Society.

Highlights of Fox Island:

·    Features over 200 vintage photographs from personal collections and the Fox Island Historical Society’s archives, many of which have never been seen

·    Reveals the perspective of a Fox Island native who saw the land drastically change over his sixty years as a resident

·    Includes images of the Fox Island bridge, Camp TaHaDoWa and the brick-manufacturing company that was the island’s main industry at one time
