“Weller’s debut novel, seven years in the making, is an extraordinary and memorable work of historical fiction. During the Civil War, Abel Trueman ends up on the wrong side of the Battle of the Wilderness and comes out emotionally scarred. Later in life, Abel and his dog set out on foot to cross the Olympic Mountains. This journey evolves into one of redemption, discovery and renewed hope through encounters with heart-strong characters along the way. Weller possesses incredible talent and I already look forward to his next book.”—Janis, Eagle Harbor Book Company, Bainbridge Island, WA. Buy Wilderness from Eagle Harbor Book Company.
