Native American History

Two Voices by Jean Bedal Fish (Author), Edith Bedal (Author), Astrida R. Blukis Onat (Editor)


Two Voices is a collection of stories written by two sisters whose lives spanned the 20th Century. Their mother Susan was the daughter of Wawetkin, a Sauk Chief. Their father James Bedal was a pioneer. The book includes legends of the Sauk-Suiattle Tribe and tribal history. Individual stories tell of family life on the Bedal homestead in the high Cascade Mountains. Stories of the family logging, mining, and horse packing businesses during early pioneer days are wonderfully told by the persons who lived this life.
