A deeply satisfying story of the early Pacific North West, by an author that knows what he is talking about. When you start to anticipate a plot twist or that something is about to happen, it will - just NOT what you thought was coming. The destruction of an entire culture right before your eyes by a killer you cannot see and from whom there is no protection? Makes me very glad I live now instead of in that time, but you just can't put the book down because you KNOW something is going to happen. (It does) Great book! Why isn't this series being at least considered for film?
