West of Here

west_of_hereWest of Here, by Jonathan Evison, is a five-generation saga that begins with the arrival of 1890s idea man Ethan Thornburgh at the fishing village of Port Bonita on Washington Territory’s forlorn coast. He tames the wild Elwha River with dams and San Francisco money, creating elusive prosperity to Port Bonita. The swerving of the story line from the past to the tawdry present may bemuse some, but this massive tale of a fading West is strangely epic.
