Rakestraw Books "Live at Home!" with Jonathan Evison & Jess Walter


Jonathan Evison, Legends of the North Cascades

A new book from our old friend Jonathan Evison is always a special occasion here at Rakestraw Books. And, we're here to tell you, Legends of the North Cascades is a triumph. At once epic and intimate, grand and intensely moving, this is one of the year's great novels. We are thrilled to invite you to a virtual event with Jonathan Evison for this wonderful new novel.

“Under the daunting and impassive mountains of the title, two dramas, one ancient and one contemporary, intertwine to become a greater story of parent and child attempting to survive in the harshest of circumstances. For me, the heart of this fine novel is Bella, a young heroine whose courage and steadfastness are a timely reminder of how human decency can prevail in the darkest of situations.” —Ron Rash, author of Serena and In the Valley

As winter sweeps toward the North Cascades, past and present intertwine into a timeless odyssey. Poignant and profound, Legends of the North Cascades brings Jonathan Evison’s trademark vibrant, honest voice to bear on an expansive story that is at once a meditation on the perils of isolation and an exploration of the ways that connection can save us.

Join Rakestraw Books as we celebrate the publication of Legends of the North Cascades on Wednesday, 23 June 2021 at 5 PM (PT) with a special virtual event with Jonathan Evison. For this special event Evison will be joined in conversation by bestselling novelist Jess Walter. This is a FREE event, but advance reservations are essential. Make your reservations HERE.
