They have owned it for three generations, and its value has multiplied to over a billion dollars. Nick Jensen is the fourth generation, a fortunate son college graduate, training in the family business, and enjoying the good life with Mommy and Daddy standing by. But a wild party spawns a seismic shift, a young woman lies in a coma, Nickas father dies in a car wreck, and the keys to the family treasure end up in the hands of Isabella Jensen, Nickas mother and a staunch environmentalist. Opposing philosophies clash, leaving Nick at war with his mother. He strikes a deal to buy their three mills, but borrows money from the wrong people and finds himself in a squeeze play from which no one could escape. Just when it looks like he might, the Spotted Owl is listed and chaos takes over. Starting in Eugene, Oregon, and spreading to the beaches, mountains, forests, and cities here and abroad, the Jensens struggle with dangerous enemies and valiant dreams.A page-turner from beginning to end.
