George Fuller undertook the remarkable task of writing the history of Washington state, a state not even 50 years old at the time - Washington was admitted to the Union in 1889. Fuller's long term goal was to build a repository of historical information at the Spokane library for future generations to appreciate. His legacy is still intact today at the Spokane library. A salient point in his 383 page book and a first at the time, is his covering of the Indian Wars in the area dating from around 1850. At the time not much had been written about this subject. Fuller's research included walking the past skirmish locations and he even drew up maps. Among the subjects he covers in the book is the Whitman Massacre and Nez Perce Chief Joseph.
