Teaser Tuesday: Light on the Devils


As late as March, the Klamath still flowed high and muddy, still churned with rocks and snags and root wads.  In that month, Happy Camp's deputy sheriff drowned, victim of his own hubris and the terrible indifferent power of the river.
-- Light on the Devils: Coming of Age on the Klamath by Louise Wagenknecht, published by OSU Press.  This is an incredible, well-told story about growing up in a remote lumber town in the 1960s and '70s. 

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Sounds like an interesting story. My teasers are from Until Next Time by Amy Lignor and The Fireman Who Loved Me by Jennifer Bernard. Happy reading!

This sounds good. I've never been to the northwest U.S. and have always wanted to. Maybe this book would give me a different view than other books I've read.

Drownings are always sad.
