Stumps of Mystery: Stories from the End of an Era
by Susan Wickstrom
Stumps of Mystery: Stories from the End of an Era is a novel of stories set in Woodhill, a fictional Willamette Valley town, in the year before the 2008 presidential election. These stories explore such contemporary and relevant Western themes as land use, immigration, same-sex marriage and environmental issues. These issues seemed insurmountable at the time, and some still are today.
