Washington native creates NW historical novel

Cultural clashes, however, threatened the safety, security, and fulfillment of the ‘American dream.’ Fascinating, yet little known Pacific Northwest history, as well as dramatic adventure and raw emotion are woven together in Washington native Dr. Gerard LaSalle’s new historical novel based in the Pacific Northwest, Widow Walk.
Having lived, loved, and worked in the areas he writes about, LaSalle’s passion for the area’s history is apparent in every page. A book three years in the making, Widow Walk blends our country’s early history with multi-dimensional characters based on true American pioneers. The needs and instincts that drive the main heroine, Emmy, are ones with which we still identify today.
