Compelled to review
Wow, why had I never heard of Kem Nunn before? If not for a passing reference to Dogs of Winter on Instagram, I'd still be ignorant. My library had only one of his titles, not this one, so I took a chance and purchased it. Now I have to buy his others too. Richly dark and moody, it takes you on a slow (my preference) but thrilling ride filled with mystery, place, atmosphere, compelling characters, both major and minor -- what more could you ask for? And when you stumble upon a book like this, you really win the lottery when its narration takes it to another level and enriches it beyond that of a simple reading. Jim Beaver's Drew Harmon is one of the great Audible performances. Now not only do I want to read the rest of Kem Nunn's books, I want to listen to everything Jim Beaver has narrated.

My Favorite Kem Nunn Book....so far....
Gritty and absorbing. Fantastic real life characters. Again, the clear insight into a culture I know less than I wish about. This book tells a story that is very satisfying and still leaves me with some questions to ponder.
The descriptions of the Native American culture and the fine lines between tribes and the trespasser.
Great reading voice that identifies the characters; the timing of his storytelling keeps me waiting expectantly as I would listening to a story around the campfire.
The descriptions of surf and of the northwest natural terrain made me feel the spray and drizzle on my skin.
I also loved the intimate description of the construction of the surf board, the materials used, the strength of the men who hauled those big boards through thicket and portage to reach an isolated unexplored parcel of beach and wave. Excellent.
