Beyond the hippy greenness of Portland, the tech-grunge wealth of Seattle, and the cosmopolitan cool of Vancouver is the older, elemental Pacific Northwest, where landscape and people combine in a spare geography of rock, water and forest.

Those ofMoreBeyond the hippy greenness of Portland, the tech-grunge wealth of Seattle, and the cosmopolitan cool of Vancouver is the older, elemental Pacific Northwest, where landscape and people combine in a spare geography of rock, water and forest. Those of us not born to that older Northwest can no more pretend to understand it than we can resist being drawn to it. This collection of short stories is populated by characters drawn westward like moths to lights, and by others who generate those lights. The title novella introduces Landon Go, a bookish seventeen-year-old skateboarder navigating strong women and small town complexity, all the while staying focused on his dream of a life in Sedro-Woolley, Washington.

In other stories we meet an aging surfer who speaks to himself across time, a parole officer watching helplessly as his small town disintegrates, and a mysterious backwoods woman who leads a young software millionaire on a romantic hide-and-seek chase through the North Cascades. These imaginings are for anyone who loves the Northwest or the idea of it.
