David Guterson Synopses: East of the Mountains is a standalone title by David Guterson. When retired heart surgeon Ben Givens discovers that he has terminal cancer, he refuses to simply give up. Instead he takes his two beloved dogs and goes on a last hunt, determined to go out the way he wants. But as the people he meets and the memories over which he lingers remind him of the mystery of life’s endurance, his trek into the American West becomes much more than a final journey.

In Our Lady of the Forest by David Guterson, teenager Ann Holmes is a fragile, pill-popping runaway who receives a visitation from the Virgin Mary one morning while picking mushrooms in the woods of North Fork, Washington. In the ensuing days the miracle recurs, and the declining logging town becomes the site of a pilgrimage of the faithful and desperate. As these people flock to Ann – and as Ann herself is drawn more deeply into what is either holiness or madness – Our Lady of the Forest – seamlessly splices the miraculous and the mundane.
