Suncadia (Resort), Suncadia Fund for Community Enhancement
Stella Walsh discusses her family’s background in homesteading and running the Walsh sawmill in the Teanaway River Valley, Washington, until 1908, when they moved the mill to Lake Cle Elum. Walsh details her family history both at Lake Cle Elum and in the Teanaway. She talks about the nationalities of settlers in Roslyn, Washington, and about local coal mining. She describes the effects of Prohibition, the Great Depression, and mining strikes on the area.
The cover image shows Joe Walsh (most likely Stella's spouse) of Joe Walsh Logging Company in Cle Elum, Washington, standing on the running board of his logging truck, 1964.
