Skagit (Book) - 6/17/2003 9:48:56 AM
Robert Miskimon's "Skagit" is a compelling novel about the people who reside on a small island in the Pacific Northwest. When a proposal to bridge their island to the mainland threatens the integrity of their refuge, the men and women of Skagit form their own community government on the island - yet the exploitation and greed that some humans resist and all humans share is not so easy to keep out. Skagit is recommended as a rewarding read examining the dual sides of human nature.

This is rather heavy going, but worth it. Most people would rather not think about death and the afterlife, but Miskimon has given the matter more than a little thought. There's a strange dichotomy between the surface story of a newspaperman struggling to get his life in order and the under-story that death is there to gobble up everything no matter what we do. It left me feelind a little disconcerted. But I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to delve into this topic.

I think my favorite is "Ashes to Sea", but they are all very
well written. There is a lot to take in here, perhaps
if you posted them individualy they would receive the reads they deserve. Not to say they don't work very well together....just a friendly suggestion.
