Trask

£39.99

Product description

Set in 1848 on the wild edge of the continent, in the rainforests and rugged headlands of the Oregon coast, Trask follows a mountain man's quest for new opportunities and new land to settle. Elbridge Trask is a restless man, a gambler with God, nature, and life itself. Yearning for change, he sets out with Wakila, a young Clatsop Indian, and Charley Kehwa, a tamanawis man or spiritual leader of the tribe, on an extraordinary journey of discovery.
Trask is at once a gripping tale of adventure and a portrayal of one man's return to the naked simplicity of life. Inspired by his belief in the transcendent power of nature, his fascination with Eastern philosophy and the lives of historical men and women, Don Berry created a story that is strongly imagined and powerfully rendered-a landmark work. This is an ex-school library book which has library stamps inside front and back, also a ticket holder on the inside cover. This is a first edition publication with no other physical flaws. Perfect for a fan of adventure novels.
