Annotation Katie Kettle Gale was born into a Salish community in Puget Sound in the 1850s. With her people forced out of their accustomed hunting and fishing grounds, she sought her fortune in Oyster Bay. Steeped in sadness - with a lost home and a broken marriage, children dying in their teens, and tuberculosis claiming her at 43, Katie's story is also one of remarkable pluck, a tale of hard work and ingenuity, bad luck and gritty initiative.
