I really enjoyed your interview on David Douglas this morning. Another important NW explorer that isn't as well known was Theodore Winthrop who did many interesting explorations in the northwest, especially in the Puget Sound region, the cascades, and the Olympic Penninsula. Timothy Egan, an author living in the Seattle area, has written an excellent book on northwest history titled The Good Rain: Across Tie and Territory in the Pacific Northwest. I have met Mr. Egan (Willamette University gave him an honorary degree last May) and he is an excellent conversationalist and would make an ideal guest on your program. Tim Egan discusses Winthrop quite extensively in that book.
