East of the MountainsLarge Print - 1999
From ABBY award-winning author David Guterson comes another beautiful novel of humanity, passion, moral honesty and personal discovery. In East of the Mountains, he introduces us to Ben Givens, a 73-year-old retired Seattle heart surgeon. Diagnosed with terminal cancer, and still grieving over the loss of his wife, Ben decides to end his life where it began -- in the picturesque country of the Columbia River Basin. His plan is simple, but it is undermined by a series of life-altering events.
