Kathleen Dean Moorehas a cabin in southeast Alaska and flies up there every year with her husband for some cherished time away from it all.
In her novel "Piano Tide,'' Moore puts Alaska on the national literary map in a story that is heartfelt, passionate and a very good yarn as well.
It's s about nature, the environment and a cast of characters, young and old, whose lives intersect in the scenario she has created.

Kathleen Dean Moore is best-known for her nonfiction books of nature-focused essays — Riverwalking: Reflections on Moving Water; Holdfast: At Home in the Natural World, The Pine Island Paradox, and Wild Comfort.. Her most recent publication was Great Tide Rising(Counterpoint 2016). Moore writes from a small summer cabin where two creeks and a bear trail meet a tidal cove on Chichagof Island in southeast Alaska.Do we belong to the Earth or does the Earth belong to us? That question raised by Chief Sealth almost two centuries ago continues to be the defining quandary of the wet, wild rainforests along the shores of the Pacific Northwest. It seethes below the tides of the fictional town Moore created for her novel called Good River Harbor, a little village in southeast Alaska pressed against the mountains — homeland to bears, whales, and a few weather-worn families.
In ''Piano Tide,'' the debut novel by award-winning naturalist, philosopher, activist and author Kathleen Dean Moore, we are introduced to town father Axel Hagerman, who has made a killing in this remote Alaskan harbor by selling off the spruce, the cedar, the herring and halibut. But when he decides to export the water from a salmon stream, he runs head-long into young Nora Montgomery, just arrived on the ferry with her piano and her dog. Nora has burned her bridges in the lower 48, and she aims to disappear into this new homeland, with her piano as her anchor. But when Axel's next business proposition, a bear pit, turns lethal, Nora has to act. The clash, when it comes, is a spectacular and transformative act of resistance.
