Survival serves us

Feeling overwhelmed, uncertain

and full of wonder is not a feeling I’ve

yet escaped and don’t hope to escape.

— Peter Rock

Peter Rock is the author of seven novels and a short story collection. 

His best-known book, My Abandonment, [one of my favorite novels] is based on the true story of a father and his 13-year-old daughter who lived in an urban forest in Portland, Oregon. His most recent novel, Klickitat, is a young adult novel centered on two sisters and wilderness survival.

Peter Rock is now featured on 3 Good Books, a blog series I host in which I ask writers to share their favorite books on a given them.
