This book deals with some difficult subjects - end of life issues, the importance of place, the kindness and cruelty of humans, and much much more. I would not say I enjoyed the read, but I did find myself contemplating important questions and for me that is one hallmark of a good book.

An evocative tale of a dying man who takes a final hunting trip from Seattle to eastern Washington. Familiarity with the area (and with apples, and bird hunting) is helpful, but not required.
