Notes

Description
"NATIONAL BESTSELLER A MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK: Entertainment Weekly, Oprah Daily, Vogue, Los Angeles Times, The Daily Beast, CNN, Harper's Bazaar "A glorious book-an assured novel that's gorgeously told." -The New York Times Book Review "An incredibly moving epic about an unforgettable family." -CBS Sunday Morning "[An] absorbing novel...I felt both grateful to have known these people and bereft at the prospect of leaving them behind." -The Washington Post A stunning novel about love, work, and marriage that asks how far one family and one community will go to protect their future.Colleen and Rich Gundersen are raising their young son, Chub, on the rugged California coast. It's 1977, and life in this Pacific Northwest logging town isn't what it used to be. For generations, the community has lived and breathed timber; now that way of life is threatened. Colleen is an amateur midwife. Rich is a tree-topper. It's a dangerous job that requires him to scale trees hundreds of feet tall-a job that both his father and grandfather died doing. Colleen and Rich want a better life for their son-and they take steps to assure their future. Rich secretly spends their savings on a swath of ancient redwoods. But when Colleen, grieving the loss of a recent pregnancy and desperate to have a second child, challenges the logging company's use of the herbicides she believes are responsible for the many miscarriages in the community, Colleen and Rich find themselves on opposite sides of a budding conflict. As tensions in the town rise, they threaten the very thing the Gundersens are trying to protect: their family. Told in prose as clear as a spring-fed creek, Damnation Spring is an intimate, compassionate portrait of a family whose bonds are tested and a community clinging to a vanishing way of life. An extraordinary story of the transcendent, enduring power of love-between husband and wife, mother and child, and longtime neighbors. An essential novel for our times"--,Provided by publisher.
