Overview

A Promise Given is a nonfiction book dealing with the many diverse issues each of us must face at various points during our lifetimes: love, loss, the complexities of growing old, and how each of us has the opportunity to directly effect the environment in which we live.

This fast-paced narrative quickly pulls the reader into a Northwest setting and the time period surrounding World War II. Trevor Russell enlists in the service and returns home to attend college and become an elementary school teacher. He falls in love, they marry and through a lasting marriage spanning nearly six decades, the couple is forced to meet the challenge of having to remove their son from life support, one of them battles a terrible disease and finally they escape to live on a remote ranch 60 miles from the nearest town.

It is here that Trevor makes a promise to his dying wife, promising to bring the mountain bluebirds back to Oregon. He fulfills that promise by building bird houses. Trevor has built, and put up, more than a thousand birdhouses. Because of his determined efforts, the beautiful mountain bluebirds are making a strong comeback on the High Desert, and spreading across Oregon and beyond. This proves that each of us in our daily lives have the opportunity, and responsibility, to try and make a positive impact on our world.
