Summary, etc.:
A sweeping novel about the last days of the lumberjacks is told by of one of the greatest lumberjacks of all who recounts tales rife with murder, mayhem, avalanches, and bootlegging in the tiny timber town of Cordelia, Idaho.
In the tiny timber town of Cordelia, Idaho, ninety-nine year old Weldon Applegate recounts his life in all its glory. It's the story of dark pine forests brewing with ancient magic, and Weldon's struggle as a boy to keep his father's inherited timber claim, the Lost Lot, from the ravenous clutches of Linden Laughlin. Local legend says th Applegate family line boasts some of the greatest lumberjacks to ever roam the American West, but at the beginning of the twentieth century the jacks are dying out. Now it is up to Weldon to defend his family legacy. -- adapted from jacket
