Here is a world where coyotes have formed an army, where animals talk, where humans and animals live side by side like equals, and where plants and trees can communicate. We're not in Portland anymore. Or are we? Part of the unique and successful structure of Wildwood comes from Colin Meloy's ability to bring these fantastical elements together with the recognizable foundation of Portland, Oregon and its wild - but very real - Forest Park. This highly creative story and firmly grounded landscape, combined with a familiar culture of bureaucratic red tape and politics-as-usual, creates a remarkable debut, one that speaks to - and about - our present state of affairs, as well as our wildest imaginations.
A view of one tiny part of the 40 mile Wildwood Trail in Portland, Oregon
