Molly Gloss

The Jump-Off Creek by Molly Gloss is the story of a woman who homesteads alone in Oregon in 1895. It has compelling characters, vivid prose, a strong story, and is practically a textbook on how to show and not tell. My bookclub for writers found it inspirational.

The book won several prizes, including Finalist, PEN/Faulkner Award for American Fiction, H. L. Davis/Oregon Book Award for Fiction, & Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award.
