Writing for our Wilds: Ron Rash's "In the Valley"

In Ron Rash's hotly anticipated follow-up to his beloved 2008 title Serena, Rash gives us 10 allegorical tales and one novella based off of the setting and characters in his aforementioned New York Times bestseller. The novella ties in directly to the ending of Serena and ties up a few loose ends left in that ending, but the themes throughout speak to humanity's rampant destruction of wilderness for the sake of profit and nature's ways of fighting back against that. With the 10 short stories, not all tie in to the themes presented in Serena and the novella, but each highlights both the darkness and the light that can be found in each of us. Here I'll give a sampling of some, but not all,
