I am an Alaskan tribe member, I grew up hearing stories of these things. This is a brilliant novel of the what-if-these-things-were-real-and-still-around variety. Demonstrates an impressive understanding of the subtext and function of the myths used to build his modern supernatural thriller. His descriptions of the interactions with the people and environs of Alaska are spot on. Scared the shit out of me and made me homesick. I love this book.

Krisjericho Damn book. Still freaks me out. 8mo

And sometimes an old soul of a dog can perhaps teach us more than humans do. In this sad, beautiful and wonderfully written tale one finds a solace that resonates within you. A terribly touching story of love, kindness, family, loss, perseverance and of course racing in the rain. A perfect read for quiet, quiet afternoons.
P.S: Be ready with a box of tissue.

My first #AuthorEvent! Thanks @Jeannie for going with me!

I have to admit that I have not read any of his books, but after hearing him talk I absolutely can not wait to finish Beartown. Hopefully this weekend! ? We also got to meet #GarthStein!

Another good quote was "My favorite genre is Kevin Costner plays baseball." ??

It was a fun mini #LitsyMeetup too with @EsquireGirl @Sweettartlaura @tacomadawn & @craftybooklovergal !
