Through the life stories of the author's grandfathers, father, uncles, and cousins, Deadfall documents the dramatic changes in the logging industry since the early 1900s. The book focuses on the influence of international timber giant Weyerhaeuser Company in the Pacific Northwest, yet it themes resonate from Alaska to the American Southwest-wherever timber is king. While spurning nostalgia for logging's glory days, Deadfall attempts to view a future for today's timber workers.

I have to be honest and state my appeal to this book is entirely based around the fact that it takes place where I grew up and that Jim was my High School English teacher. Nevertheless, still a quite interesting read. Read full review
