Lumber baron Noah Mackenzie has a bitter history with the Algonquin forest, and now he's trying to clear-cut the part he considers his own. In the remote Maine town of Abenaki Juntion, only Madeleine Cody stands up to Mackenzie. Using her small newspaper, The Forest Sentinel, she has long tried to peacefully stop the excessive logging. But when radical Adam Gabriel arrives at Abenaki Junction, he proposes a new and dangerous form of protest. Gabriel pushes both Madeleine and Mackenzie to defend what they love - no matter the cost.

Editorial Reviews

"Paul Watkins is without question one of the most gifted writers of his generation. A storyteller to his bones, he also has language, and a particularly masculine tenderness, and a restless curiosity. The result is work of astonishing variety and range." -Tobias Wolff"Crisp, satisgying . . . The forest over which the characters are struggling takes on a memorable vibrancy and life." -Elle"Rich characterizations and a seamless narrative bring to raoring life this tale of environmental conflict . . . Watkins evokes the grandeur of the woods as well as the wild unpredictability of both natural and social violence." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)
