Place of Plenty: A History of Wenatchee
by Chris Rader
Place of Plenty/Un lugar de abundancia is a brief and very readable history of Wenatchee written in English and Spanish. The book describes the many people who have contributed to our region’s development, from Native Americans through early settlers, Asians, Latinos to business and community leaders – with sections on agriculture, transportation, arts and recreation up to the present day. Written by Chris Rader, staff writer for the Wenatchee Valley Museum since 2006, the book is written in a lively and conversational style that readers of both languages can enjoy, and contains nearly 100 photographs from the museum’s collection.
