This is the story of a dying culture and the people who lived and died there.

Recently injured in a vehicular crash that killed his girlfriend, a young forester is assigned to a new job in a remote area of northwestern Montana. He is befriended by an alcoholic logging truck driver, whose efforts to move both into recovery helped in no small way by two women who guide them. Centered on the western logging industry, the story focuses on events that bring sudden change to an ideologically resistant area and the men’s unwilling involvement. Upon arriving, he confronts his hard-driving boss rebelliously, but soon learns that finding what he's looking for will require a major effort on his part. The locals, a hard-working, hard-living, idiosyncratic lot take on the task of educating their new co-worker in ways he could never have imagined. Learning lessons that teach him about surviving the horrific he finds himself melding into the eclectic area when changing times force the locals to rely on his assistance. Just as he becomes attached to his new surroundings and the quirky inhabitants, new technology threatens his job followed by news of a hydroelectric dam construction effort planned a short way downstream that will destroy the entire valley.

My social profiles on...
Dave Folsom started writing stories and essays at an early age. After taking a course in creative writing on a whim he began writing in earnest influenced by the many colorful characters he’d met while traveling new places and occupations. Some, though not all, of the characters and events depicted in his prose are based on these experiences. They tweaked his imagination and demanded their story told. The rest are products of a wild imagination. His work in print includes Finding Jennifer, Scaling Tall Timber, The Dynameos Conspiracy, The Zeitgeist Project and a compilation of short stories under the title Running with Moose.
