Abstract:

"It's 1935. Slip Wilson walks off his job at a logging camp after a gruesome accident kills a coworker. On his way to Seattle to start over, he helps a woman get her car out of a ditch, and his life takes a serious detour. The woman, Ellie Hobbes, is an anarchist from the docks of Seattle who takes care of her young niece and dreams of flying planes. But right now she has a dead body in the trunk of her car and she's on the run. So begins the action that will take Slip, Ellie, her niece, and her noisy yellow bird on a heart-stopping adventure up the Inside Passage from Puget Sound to Alaska. They travel by dory to stay off the roads, and are followed by union men out for revenge and a dogged Seattle police detective who recently lost his wife and is looking for a new life of his own. And after they all catch up with each other in Alaska, events turn deadly." BOOK JACKET.
