About the Author

LLyn De Danaan is a writer and an anthropologist. She contributed to the book Vashon Island Archaeology: A View from Burton Acres Shell Midden, and her articles have appeared in Women's Studies Quarterly, Columbia: The Magazine of Northwest History, and Oregon Historical Quarterly.


"Katie Gale's story is unique in its scale; few accounts of the nineteenth-century Northwest focus on the life of a single Native woman and her family. LLyn De Danaan's writing is big history made deeply human, offering insights not just into Native American history but also into the arrival of industrial capitalism on Puget Sound, the politics of statehood and race in Washington, and the profound transformation of local landscapes." - Coll Thrush, author of Native Seattle: Histories from the Crossing-Over Place "I have followed LLyn De Danaan's writing path for years now. She is talented and bold, and this new book puts her firmly where she belongs - at the heart of the American voice. Good stuff, highly recommended." - Luis Alberto Urrea, author of The Devil's Highway and Into the Beautiful North
