Discussion Questions

What People are Saying About This

James Welch

A complex, almost Faulknerian portrait of the Pacific Northwes–as beautiful and mysterious as the area itself. It is also a hell of a good read.

Raymond Carver

A novel of grandeur and daring, a book of fierce pleasures. Its themes are those that have occupied the great story-tellers from the beginning: the journey of self-discovery, danger and self reliance.

Mary Lee Settle

Its surface is a stunning story of survival; its depth is the American journey to the West. They reflect each other, for Yellowfish is a new version of how the West was and is won by lost people. A bright vision of the morals of necessity, beautifully told.
