This is the perfect guide for a movie marathon!

My favorite films and TV included in this book: Grey’s Anatomy (2005-Present), The Goonies (1985), Short Circuit (1986), and Practical Magic (1998), and Coraline (2009).

This book is a must read for your Pacific Northwest history shelf. Its an amazing and complex adventure story that dives deep into the hidden histories of logging and its disruptive intersection with indigenous cultures in our region. 

I've been a huge fan of this authors The Tiger for some time and am so glad I finally made time for this incredible book.
