Forest Blood: A Novel
This is the rugged story of Jack Gilliam, a third-generation logger who, in the wake of a junk-bond Wall Street takeover of Oregon forests, becomes the timber war's first world famous casualty. Gilliam then becomes its most coveted pawn, as timber bosses, environmental protesters, cut-throat news reporters and politicians from county commissioners to the President, crawl over each other to profit from his tragedy.
