  • I Heard the Owl Call My Name

    Margaret Craven

    Mass Market Paperback (Dell, Jan. 15, 1980)
    Amid the grandeur of the remote Pacific Northwest stands Kingcome, a village so ancient that, according to Kwakiutl myth, it was founded by the two brothers left on earth after the great flood. The Native Americans who still live there call it Quee, a place of such incredible natural richness that hunting and fishing remain primary food sources. But the old culture of totems and potlatch is being replaces by a new culture of prefab housing and alcoholism. Kingcome's younger generation is disenchanted and alienated from its heritage. And now, coming upriver is a young vicar, Mark Brian, on a journey of discovery that can teach him—and us—about life, death, and the transforming power of love.

  • Walk Gently This Good Earth

    Margaret Craven

    Hardcover (G. P. Putnam's Sons, March 15, 1977)
    From the Depression to the present, from their idyllic childhood in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest to their ranching days in the wide-open spaces of Montana, the Westcotts stick together in a world where old-fashioned values are rapidly changing. Raised by Judge Westcott, a brilliant lawyer and wise father, and Maria, their loving indispensable housekeeper, the four Westcott children and their adopted brother embrace a lasting tradition of good sense, wit, and hard work. With stunning simplicity, Margaret Craven captures the awesome thrill of climbing in the Cascades, standing on a virgin mountain peak, or discovering a glacier, as she traces the children's coming-of-age with grace and humor.

    Margaret Craven

    Mass Market Paperback (Dell, Dec. 1, 1983)
    “A rich memoir . . . a woman of sensitivity, forthrightness, warmth, and talent.”—Booklist To become a writer, she chose loneliness. To write a bestseller, she embraced a rugged land. Deceptively simple in style, stunning in its implications, this gem of an autobiography carries readers back to the beginning of the century when Margaret Craven—one a handful of women at Stanford and a groundbreaking woman journalist—made the audacious decision not to work for a living, but to work as a writer.Here Margaret Craven brings vividly to life an idyllic childhood which suddenly vanishes; advice from a red-robed Gertrude Stein propped up in bed; a nearly tragic battle with blindness; and a fateful trip to a magnificently wild Pacific Northwest, a town called Kingcome . . . and her emergence, at sixty-nine, as a women who realized a dream. Praise for Again Calls the Owl “A writer of compassion, humor, spirit, and persistence.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch “Readers will find in this small memoir courage, joy, inspiration.”—Library Journal “An unabashed joy for living.”—Santa Barbara News-Press
