"Widow Walk is American Historical Fiction in the finest tradition, a direct descendent of Last of the Mohicans and Cold Mountain. LaSalle recounts the brutal, poignant clash between Native American Indian tribes and white settlers in the Pacific Northwest with economy and beauty, writing clean, devastating prose that clutches at your heart. This lean, unsparing narrative will make you look away in sorrow--before raising your fist in triumph. A quintessential rendering of the American Experience."
- Richard Barager, author of Altamont Augie Silver Medal winner 2011 Book of the Year Awards
From the Author
Book Inspiration:"I shuddered the first time I saw the Curtis film, the tribe's shaman dressed as a huge raven god at the prow. It reminded me of the stories told by various Coastal Native Americans, how they contended with headhunting slavers they called 'The Northerners,' their longboats on the horizon closing in on my home and the terror of trying to hide one's children from these killers, these merciless Northwest aboriginal Vikings."
- Gerard LaSalle
