Abstract:

"Welcome to the tiny villages of Eldorado and Elkville, in the shadow of the glacial Valhalla mountain range. Everyone knows everyone and the place is wall-to-wall with lovable, weird and wacky eccentrics, many of them refugees from the Sixties and Seventies. A close-knit community, where you're as likely to encounter angry loggers as aging hippies. The central character, a journalist named Roy Breen, is nearly worn out after 15 years working at a big city daily newspaper. He's returning to home ground still carrying urban attitude, and goes to work for the tiny, independently owned Mountain Echo. When government bureaucrats decide the community's hospital emergency ward must be closed, Roy finds himself teetering on the knife-edge between journalism and activism."--
