Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1995. First edition. Hardcover. Signed by the author on the title page. This novel, the author's first, was nominate for a Pulitzer Prize. Laced with the solace of the great outdoors and infused with the spirituality of Indians on the local reservation in a small town in Oregon where the interwoven currents of love, death, and a boy's coming of age flow swiftly below a surface life of hard work and confrontation with the forces of nature. The lives of young Culver, his twice-married mother, and his charismatic uncle Jake have been always overshadowed by the death of Culver's father in a fishing accident. When a suspicious fire destroys the town mill and three murders occur, Culver is engulfed by the dangers he finds lurking in the place he'd come to call home. Love, death, coming of age, and Native American spiritual beliefs flow together with the forces of nature in this novel. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. Item #15364
