Drawing upon his personal experiences while living and working in the Pacific Northwest, Skookum Maguire creates a compelling collection of short stories depicting the lives of ordinary people in this majestic part of the United States.
Each story vividly examines the struggles of our daily lives. In the title story, "Invasion of the Bible Thumpers," a business owner strives to save his livelihood, his marriage, and his home, only to be undermined by a trusted employee. "A Time for Mourning" chronicles the story of Harley, a lovesick logger, and a tragic accident that follows.
"Invasion of the Bible Thumpers" is a literary roller-coaster ride down the emotional tracks of love, fear, and triumph, artfully positioning modernity against human individualism.
