The Indians of Puget Sound: The Notebooks of Myron Eells (Seattle: University of Washington Press, 1985). Myron Eells was a missionary who lived on the Skokomish Reservation from 1874 until his death in 1907. This was where he did all of his ethnographic writing on the Coast Salish people specifically those of Puget Sound. This book is based off a manuscript that Eells had been writing up until his death and includes some of his published papers. Eells strength comes in his observations of ceremonial life and religious activities, and not the description of material things.
