Peter Donahue Book Launch

trailsendbookstore Fri, 11/01/2019 - 3:56pm


Long out-of-print Washington State novels, memoirs, and poetry collections from the late 1800s to the mid-1960s reveal an impressive literary legacy—one that illuminates numerous aspects of the Northwest, evokes a variety of eras, themes, and locations, and reflects how Northwesterners regarded themselves. A hybrid of literary criticism, history, and biography, the essays in Salmon Eaters to Sagebrushers examine these “vintage” gems, pairing reappraisals of more than forty works with short excerpts and author profiles.

Peter Donahue is the author of four works of fiction set in Washington, including Madison House and Three Sides Water, and is co-editor of the anthologies Reading Seattle and Reading Portland.
