Puget Sound is the beautiful waterway that defines the Western Washington. Art Wolfe, the Seattle-born photographer who has traveled the world to capture landscape and animals on film, turns to the place he knows best for a book of new images. From Olympia in the south to the San Juan Islands, from the foothills of the Cascade Range to the face of the Olympic Mountains, this is an exceptionally picturesque region. Wolfe brings a sense of intimate landscape to his views of this place, as he explores hidden estuaries and beaches, lush river deltas, undulating pastures, and of course the animated shapes and patterns of water. This is a settled land, and the photographer finds beauty in unique buildings and vessels that lend character to Puget Sound. Other books and photographers have taken Puget Sound as their subject, but none express the personality and the experience of the region as effectively as do these 150 Art Wolfe originals.

Written by a parent who was falsely accused of child molestation by their own child, the author endured years waiting for his trial to occur so that he could refute the claims. Written under a pseudonym to protect his privacy, the author explains the frightening statistics of just how prevalent false allegations are today. Having endured the unbelievable stress of an accusation, and watching his relationships change with his own family, close friends, and employer, the author desires to educate others with the contents of this book. Lives forever Changed is the perfect title for this book, as the author found his life, and that of those around him, to be forever changed. Having done the near impossible of actually winning a sex abuse allegation in court, the author created this book so that others facing this troubling time could have a reference to understand the emotions that they will be living. This book also will help those people close to the accused as to what to expect in the months and years ahead. Written from a person that has lived the nightmare, this book is able to provide a glimpse as to what is to happen in the near future, while providing hope.
