Read full description of the books:
As "Skookum Summer" begins, the year is 1981, and reporter Tom Dawson slinks back to his tiny Puget Sound hometown after making a disastrous mistake at the" LA Times." Working reluctantly at the local weekly, the "Big Skookum Echo," Tom is drawn into investigating a powerful logger's murder. As the mystery deepens, the murder exposes the strains on the community as pollution, development, and global change threaten traditional Northwest livelihoods. It also forces Tom to confront his own past and discover what home really means to him. Hart weaves together a gripping and suspenseful plot with richly observed Pacific Northwest history and a vivid picture of a community on the brink of change.
Jack Hart is a former managing editor and writing coach at the "Oregonian" and the author of "Storycraft: The Complete Guide to Writing Narrative Nonfiction."
