Named a Best Book of 2021 by the Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times, and Newsweek, this stunning debut novel from Ash Davidson vividly evokes the Pacific Northwest in the 1970s. Redwood logging is the only thing Rich Gunderson knows. His father and grandfather were loggers, and both died doing what they did best. His wife Colleen is a midwife, and they are raising their son Chub to follow his father into the treetops. But Rich secretly invests their savings in a stand of ancient redwoods, and Colleen discovers the logging company is using herbicides that are causing miscarriages in the community, putting them on opposite sides of a budding conflict—with both of them trying to protect their family.

"What makes Damnation Spring such a knockout—and so devastating to stomach—is Davidson's mature grasp of the precarity of life and the complexities of the human condition. It's the Gundersons' fierce love for each other and unwavering resilience despite multiple betrayals and near unshakeable losses that transform the book from a treatise on the dangers of an unfettered industrial complex and the impacts of climate change into a prescient and deeply felt novel about (mostly) good people just doing their best to survive."—SFChronicle
