Abstract:

Wealthy industrialist Karl Lindstrom has a bad environmental reputation. Members of the local Ojibwe Anishinaabe tribe are concerned about the proximity of an ancient two hundred acre expanse of great white pines to his lumber mill. The trees are sacred to the tribe. So when an explosion at the mill is claimed by the "Eco-Warrior", suspicion falls on the tribe, and the disagreement escalates. When the authorities uncover the charred body of a respected member of the tribe, the situation erupts hurling the town to the brink of war. Former sheriff Cork O'Connor is asked by his successor to help with the investigation. Cork has distinctly mixed feelings about the case since he is part Anishinaabe and his lawyer wife represents the tribe. So Cork is more than concerned about what he might find. But Lindstrom is not without enemies, and a reclusive shipwreck survivor and his sidekick harbor some age old resentment of their own against Lindstrom.
