Martin is a pine marten, a small, muscled hunter of the deep woods. Both of these wild animals are setting off on adventures on their native Mount Hood in Oregon, and their lives, paths, and trails will cross, weave, and blend. Brian Doyle is the editor of Portland Magazine at the University of Portland and the author of seventeen books of essays, fiction, poems, and nonfiction, among them the novels Mink River, a finalist for the Oregon Book Award, and The Plover. Honors for his work include the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Literature.
