ABOUT THE BOOK, in the words of Avid's Rachel Watkins:

"Taylor Brown's writing grows sharper with each book and you'll love GODS OF HOWL MOUNTAIN as the people and places inevitably win your heart. Korean war veteran Rory Docherty and his forest shaman grandmother May have a deep connection to their North Carolina town, and when Rory's bootlegging business gets rocky, deep family secrets may have something to do with the trouble. This is a lyrically beautiful book. If you haven't read Taylor Brown, I'd start with this one."
